Site Maintenance May Result in Some Down Time

Our provider will be doing some scheduled maintenance on Wednesday, July 6th. This means that the PC-BSD website, ftp server for downloads, and the pootle translation site may experience a short period of downtime. If any of these sites happens to be down when you try to access it, you probably hit the maintenance window–try again a little later.


PC-BSD Website has New Design

If you’ve been to the PC-BSD website this week, you will have noticed that it has a shiny new look. Besides being pretty, some new features were added during the redesign:

  • there is a new menu system for organizing content
  • the web backend has been updated
  • you can now chat on the #pcbsd IRC channel from your web browser (no IRC client required)
  • comments are enabled with Facebook and Twitter integration
  • blog entries automatically appear on the website’s main page
  • there is now a search bar for finding content

We hope you enjoy the new look! Leave a comment if you have any features that you would like to see included or notice anything that didn’t survive the migration from the old to the new website format.
