BSD Release: FuryBSD 20200907



  • Joe Maloney has announced the availability of a new set of releases by FuryBSD, a FreeBSD-based desktop-oriented operating system featuring the Xfce and KDE Plasma desktops. The images continue to be labelled as “12.1” (to indicate that they are based on FreeBSD 12.1), but they also include a datestamp to differentiate them from any previous FuryBSD 12.1 builds: “FuryBSD 2020-Q3 - the world’s first OpenZFS-based live image. In order to provide the most reliable experience possible and while preserving integrity of the system, the live CD now leverages ZFS compression, replication, memory file systems and reroot. Changes since 2020-Q2: 12.1-RELEASE-p9; X.Org 1.20.8, NVIDIA driver 440.100, Xfce 4.14, Firefox 79.0; added check for 4GB minimum system memory to boot the image; replaced UnionFS with compressed ZFS memdisk; added VMSVGA support for VirtualBox 6; replaced Poudriere image with BSDinstall to fix freebsd-update issues after image assembly…” Here is the complete release announcement. Download (pkglist): FuryBSD-12.1-KDE-2020090701.iso (2,283MB, MD5), FuryBSD-12.1-XFCE-2020090701.iso (1,830MB, MD5). Separately, the project’s GitHub page has published new “Continuous Build” ISO images with a choice of Lumina, MATE and Xfce desktops, available for both x86_64 and i386 architectures.
