PC-BSD Hardware Store

Josh Smith has announced the initial launch of the PC-BSD hardware store. This resource is meant to make it easier to find hardware that has been tested to work on PC-BSD.  The store itself is here. If you have hardware that you know works and which you don’t see listed, please add it to the Hardware section of the wiki so that it can be included.

PC-BSD Repo Switches to Github

Last week, Kris announced on the developers mailing list that the PC-BSD source repo has switched from subversion to github.

For those of you who like to compile new features in order to test them before they are incorporated into a release or a rolling release, the instructions for getting source have been updated. Any references to svn in the wiki version of the Handbook will also be switched to the git equivalent. If you have installed subversion before from System Manager -> System Packages -> Development -> Development VCS, you already have git as it is included in that meta-package.
