First 8.2 Snapshot is Available for Testing

Kris Moore has announced that the first snapshot for 8.2 is available for testing:

The first snapshot of 8-STABLE, which will eventually become 8.2 has now been uploaded to our FTP server.

This snapshot is based upon FreeBSD 8.2-PRERELEASE, and includes KDE 4.5.3. It also contains a number of bugfixes backported from the 9 series, specifically to the installer and network management GUI. You can review the backport commits on the 8.2 TODO list.

Known Issues:

Using the “GPT” option during installation will give an error at boot, which I’m currently working on fixing.

Please feel free to give the snapshot a whirl, and report any bugs you find back to the testing list. Instructions for becoming a good beta tester can be found in this section of the Handbook.

    Good to have somethink new to test. I’ll do it probably in next few days.

    But one question. What about the support for ACPI suspend?. Could anyone test it?. PCBSD/FreeBSD 8.1 AMD64 is able to suspend (only if USB is compiled as modules and only sometimes, most of the times hangs on resume). I’ve read something about improvements in 9-current but… anything verified?

    Thanks and good job
