I got an email from Kris saying 1.6 will be out later in the summer, and that one will be based on FreeBSD 7. Personally, I hope they do not release until they can fully implement KDE 4.1 as the included desktop, so they can have a fully functional KDE4. I think Free 7 together with K4 will make PC one slammin release!

I thought PC-BSD 2.0 would be the first built on FreeBSD 7.

At the moment we're considering an additional 1.x release (1.6) on a FreeBSD 7 base, yes.

PC-BSD 2.x will be based on FreeBSD 7 and KDE4. At the moment it's looking like we won't be ready for a KDE4 release in six months time, so 1.6 will come out to ensure people get to take advantage of the features FreeBSD 7 has to offer.

2.x will come when we believe KDE4 gives our users an advantage over KDE3 (which includes completion of the FreeBSD KDE4 port), and when we've finished porting our own toolset to Qt4, and kdelibs4 (something which is bound to introduce new bugs, so may take a little while).
