Finally, it’s here! After almost a year since the last stable release, installation images of PC-BSD 9.1 hit a download mirror near you. (PC-BSD is a multi-purpose distribution based on FreeBSD.)

And it comes with a lot of goodies, especially for intermediate to advanced users, or for those that want to use with what intermediate to advanced users play with.

Some highlights of this release are: FreeBSD 9.1 forms the core; users can install a server system called TrueOS, which features PC-BSD utilities like Warden; improved system installer which has been simplified for desktop and server installations, support for ZFS mirror/raidz(1,2,3) during installation; ZFS beadm support; support for Swap on ZFS, allowing entire disk ZFS installation; support for setting additional ZFS data-set options, such as compression, noexec, etc.

Aside from a detailed review, which should be published sometime next week, expect a handful of tutorials based on this latest release. Meanwhile, here are some screen shots from test installations in a virtual environment.

The installer makes it easy to install any type of system you like. Want a FreeBSD or a TrueOS server? That’s easy.
