More important to me is the updating of ports off of the 4 series. With all of the recent "easy-to-use" desktop BSD's coming out, it would be good for DragonFly to release an updated version. Maybe before the 6 series starts! I really like the LiveCD/Install combination.

I'm not sure what you mean. My comments were based on the following:
Among them are a number of pkgsrc changes that will finally allow the developers to retire the aging FreeBSD 4 ports system, and allow the use of much more up to date third party software. This is being done on the develpoment branch of DragonFly almost exclusively so as to make sure it should be ready for 1.4-Release.

I assume this means people will be able to use something newer that FreeBSD 4 ports. If I am mistaken in that assumption, I am sorry.
