GhostBSD 20.04 Now Available

I am happy to announce the availability of GhostBSD 20.04, but first thanks to all people that gave feedback and reported issues. We fixed a couple of problems that were found in 20.03. This release comes with kernel and OS updates and numerous software applications updates and many improvements like replacing gnome-mount and hald with FreeBSD devd and Vermaden automount which make auto mounting and unmounting of external device way more stable and supports more filesystems.

GhostBSD 20.03 Now Available

I am happy to announce the availability of GhostBSD 20.03. This new build comes with some minor system update and numerous software applications updates.

What has changed since 20.02

  • The default pkg configuration now points to the GhostBSD packages repository instead of FreeBSD.

  • Fixed Update Station to make sure it only runs pkg update alone.

  • Added code to make sure that the update icon appears appropriately.

GhostBSD 20.02 Now Available

I am happy to announce the availability of GhostBSD 20.02. ZFS partition has been added to the installer custom partition editor, and it is now possible to install GhostBSD with ZFS on the same disk containing Windows, Linux, or Mac OSX partitions. The system has been updated to 1201512. The Update Station application has multiple improvements, and numerous software applications have been updated.

France mirror is moving to its own dedicated server.

Like the title says, we are moving the France mirror to is own dedicated server. We will point the sub domain to the new server, and the pkg.fr and download.fr will be unstable for the next 24 hours. The old mirror will put down eventually, it is hosted on the same machine that we build all software packages and ISO's, but in a Jail.

All that said, we have some great news coming soon involving NextArray stay tunned!

Dealing with the misunderstandings of what is GhostBSD

Since the release of 19.09, I have seen a lot of misunderstandings on what is GhostBSD and the future of GhostBSD. GhostBSD is based on TrueOS with FreeBSD 12 STABLE with our twist to it. We are still continuing to use TrueOS for OpenRC, and the new package's system for the base system that is built from ports. GhostBSD is becoming a slow-moving rolling release base on the latest TrueOS with FreeBSD 12 STABLE. When FreeBSD 13 STABLE gets released, GhostBSD will be upgraded to TrueOS with FreeBSD 13 STABLE.
