PC-BSD 7.1 - Galileo Edition Released

The PC-BSD Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of PC-BSD 7.1 - Galileo Edition!

Version 7.1 contains a number of enhancements, improvements and bugfixes from the 7.0 series.
FreeBSD 7.2-Pre
KDE 4.2.2
The new KDE 4 printer applet enables users to easily add and manage printers and print jobs without using the CUPS web interface.
The Add / Remove Programs tool and the Update Manager have been consolidated into “Software & Updates.”
The Updater Tray has been modified into a small tray-only applet that shows users when updates are available. This is far less taxing on the CPU than its previous versions.
FreeBSD ports and packages can now be installed in a clean localbase by utilizing the “runports” command.
Greater stability for Flash 9 allows users to get higher quality from Flash sites such as Hulu and Youtube.
Enhancements have been made to PC-BSD's System Installer, including upgrade functionality for those who wish to upgrade / repair PC-BSD while preserving their user data.
Fixes have been made to bugs in the Wi-Fi and Networking tools, as well as to previous Linux Emulation problems.

For a full list of changes, please refer to the changelog. Users who wish to upgrade from PC-BSD 7.0.x are able to do so via the upgrade / repair option during the installation.

Thanks, I see now: "7.2-Pre" refers to a development point in 7-STABLE prior to 7.2-RELEASE (because that's not released yet), but it's close to.

When FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE is out, maybe the PC-BSD developers offer a minor upgrade for the "OS part" of their system to catch up to the FreeBSD release.
