After A Quiet Period, New Iso

These has been some inactivity for awhile, but things have started to pick up again.

In recent days we focused on getting out a stableISO, and stable core packages. Which should be available now.

To acheive this, we branched our git and moved our unmaintained packages (Which can still be checked out and build) to an unstable branch to be packages and tested at a later date.

We have since rebuilt core with FreeBSD 11.1 and generated a new ISO for testing. Though lacking in packages as we stripped the repository to get things stable. We're doing one thing at a time.

Packages will be added again, starting with Xorg, then xfce4 then firefox and mpv. These are the packages I'll personally be maintaining to give people a feel for using pacman and FreeBSD and these
should be ready in the next few weeks for testing


If you would like to try a stable base. There is a new ISO available for testing in your Virtual Machine. These can be found at Here

Yes, sometime in the coming days, was just testing openrc and fixing some issue so only generated an iso. Most likely tomorrow, new world package and new keys were added to the repository so ISO needs to be regenerated.

We don't supply custom images like that, we are working on getting some mirrors in place that should resolve your issues with not being able make use of the repos.
