Desktop-oriented GhostBSD 19.04 was released, built on the basis of TrueOS and offering the user environment MATE. By default, GhostBSD uses the OpenRC initialization system and the ZFS file system. Both live-mode operation and hard disk installation are supported (the own ginstall installer written in Python is used). Boot images are generated for the architecture amd64 (2.7 GB).
In the new version:
- The codebase has been upgraded to the FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT experimental branch;
- The installer adds support for ZFS file system on partitions with MBR;
- To improve UFS installation support, remove the default ZFS settings for TrueOS;
- Instead of slim, the Lightdm session manager is involved;
- Gksu removed from shipment;
- Added "boot_mute" mode to boot without displaying the log on the screen;
- A block of settings for the rEFInd boot manager has been added to the installer.
