Sergei Mozhaisky has announced the release of Frenzy 1.1, a FreeBSD-based toolkit for system and network administrators. It is sad, but this version will be the project’s last release:
At last, Frenzy 1.1 is released. This is a final release of Frenzy, I decided to discontinue the development of this project.” What’s new? “Added Unionfs support; introduced FEM (Frenzy Extension Modules) system, which allows to plug-in additional software without rebuilding ISO image; Frenzy can now be booted from ISO image on hard drive; added options to boot with DMA disabled on ATAPI or ATA devices; added parameters to loader menu – ‘mode’ to choose resolution in console mode, ‘sound’ for sound card auto-detection, ‘nofem’ to disable FEM modules search and loading; added feature to use FAT partition as boot partition; bug fixes.
Read the detailed release notes for a complete list of changes and new features.
I’ve always liked Frenzy, and it was nice to have a BSD variant of nUbuntu (though not exactly the same). Frenzy is open source and hopefully someone else will take over and carry on with the project.
