GhostBSD 11.1-RC1

GhostBSD is a desktop-oriented operating system based on FreeBSD. The project has published a new release candidate for the 11.1 series, GhostBSD 11.1-RC1. The new development snapshot removes GRUB from the system installer to prevent a number of bugs and ZFS volume configuration has been updated. "This last development release of GhostBSD 11.1 is ready for testing. All MATE and Xfce images are available only for 64-bit architectures. For some of you, it might be shock that we are dropping i386 it is a decision that was hard to make. We hope for those that need i386 will find refuge to another BSD project. On this RC release, we need help to find more problems. GhostBSD 11.1 is our first release featuring our own software package repository. What changed in 11.1 RC1: We removed GRUB from the installer for 11.1 as it has caused us a lot of problems, and this is why the release is late; ZFS configuration. Issues that got fixed: The partition list was not deleted when pressing back; the installer was not listing ZFS disk correctly." The release announcement invites people testing GhostBSD to report bugs.
