2 PC-BSD Articles in May Issue of BSDMag

The May issue of BSDMag (available for free download here) has two articles about PC-BSD.

Kris Moore has an article “A Fresh Look for the Warden for PC-BSD 9.1” on pp. 6-9. Warden is a GUI tool for managing FreeBSD jails and has been rewritten for 9.1. New features include the ability to add multiple jails, the ability to create FreeBSD jails or ports jails (which use nullfs to allow you to safely install and run apps on your PC-BSD system), and the ability to export and import jails.

Jesse Smith has an article “Introducing EasyPBI–Making PBI Modules With a Few Mouse Clicks” on pp. 18-19. EasyPBI allows one to convert an existing FreeBSD port into a PC-BSD PBI with an easy-to-use GUI.

    Very cool! Thanks a lot Dru, Kris Moore and Jesse Smith. 🙂

    Any estimate on when 9.1 stable will be released?

      The FreeBSD 9.1 schedule is still under discussion, but will most likely aim for the July/August time frame. We should know more after BSDCan next week.

    sorry for not commenting to your post, but I’ve an urgent question: What about the ‘BSD-Security-Update’ via the PC-Update-Manager a few days ago. I can’t find any information at your blog site. Could you please tell me some short info about that?
