Several new FreeBSD wallpapers have been created and are available in the following resolutions:
Since the FreeBSD logo and name are registered trademarks of the FreeBSD Foundation, each wallpaper includes a subtle trademark symbol and has been approved by the Foundation.
You can download the wallpapers from this page of the PC-BSD website.
The PC-BSD Forums now have the following RSS feeds, making it handy to see new threads in your favourite RSS reader:
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.
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.
A PC-BSD user asked on IRC the other day if it was possible to download PC-BSD wallpapers from the website. The Fibonacci and Hubble wallpapers have been added to the Wallpaper section of theArtwork page.
Henrik Eismark has created a Danish social group on the PC-BSD forums. If you are a Dane who uses PC-BSD, check it out and help to spread the word so that it becomes a useful resource for networking with other Danish PC-BSD users. It looks like he is also hoping to get some help in translating the Guide to Danish.
