The developers of GhostBSD have made available the FIRST release candidate of version 11.1. This release features a removal of grub, updates to ZFS configuration, and more. You can download the ISO/image files here.

This last development release of GhostBSD 11.1 release is ready for testing. All MATE and XFCE images are available only has 64 -bit architectures. For some of you, it might be chock 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 problem. GhostBSD 11.1 is our first release featuring our own software package repository.

What change in 11.1 RC1

  • We remove grub from the installer for 11.1 it has caused us a lot of problems, and this is why the release is late.
  • ZFS configuration

Issue that got fixed

  • The partition list was not deleted when pressing back.
  • The installer was not listing ZFS disk correctly.
