An update to Adobe Flash is now available in the System Updates tab of Software Manager. The update addresses the security vulnerabilities described here. After applying the update, simply restart any open web browsers so that they will use the new version of flash.
The following PBI is now available in Software Manager:
Pan: Pan is a newsreader, loosely based on Agent and Gravity, which attempts to be pleasant to use for new and advanced users alike. It has all the typical features found in newsreaders, and also supports offline reading, multiple connections, and a number of features for power users and alt.binaries fans.
Thanks to Jesse Smith for creating this PBI and to bsdaddict for suggesting it.
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.
John Davis recently interviewed Kris Moore for PC Perspective. In the interview they discuss PC-BSD’s hardware support, performance, gaming, and the future of PC-BSD. The full interview is available here.
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.
