PC-BSD 9.2, a BSD distribution with the goal to be an easy-to-install-and-use desktop operating system based on FreeBSD, has been released and it's now available for download.

According to the developers, users who are already running an earlier 9.2 image can now update to the latest world / kernel / packages via the system updating mechanisms.

PC-BSD 9.2 is based on FreeBSD 9.2, and is using GRUB2, which means that new ZFS boot-environments created via the “beadm” command will be added to the boot-loader and available at boot-time.

Also, the installer has been updated and allows users to restore the entire system from a replicated ZFS backup, and a new Boot Manager GUI has been implemented.

A complete list of changes and features can be found in the official announcement. Download PC-BSD 9.2 right now from Softpedia.
