GhostBSD 20.11.28 Release Announcement

I am happy to announce the availability of GhostBSD 20.11.28. This release comes with a new live system that leverages ZFS, compression, and replication first introduced in FuryBSD by Joe Maloney. The 20.11.28 release contains numerous improvements, including OS fixes for linuxulator to improve Linux Steam performance, an updated kernel, and GhostBSD userland updates. Userland updates include a MATE desktop upgrade to version 1.24.1, Software Station performance improvements, and numerous application updates.

Pull Request open and merged:

To upgrade:

If the system is up to date, pkg query '%v' os-generic-userland-base should return 20.11.21.

Note: With Update Station, everything should be updated if the updates are applied as they come. We strongly recommend to only use Update Station for updating GhostBSD.
