==== New Features / Tools we would like to see in 9.0 ====
+
 
+
'''BlueTooth Manager GUI'''
+
This project would be to develop a QT4 based GUI, which acts as a front-end to the FreeBSD BlueTooth configurations, such as /etc/bluetooth/hcsecd.conf
+
 
+
[http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-bluetooth.html FreeBSD BlueTooth Handbook]
+
 
+
'''Dial-Up Tethering GUI'''
+
This project would be to develop a QT4 based GUI, which acts as a front-end to the ppp.conf file, and allow dial-up / tethering
+
configurations to be done graphically.
+
 
+
==== Getting Involved ====
+
 
+
Find something you want to help with on this list, or perhaps something you have something new to contribute? If so, first take a look at the [http://www.pcbsd.org/content/view/16/30/ Developers Page] and then get in touch with us on the [http://lists.pcbsd.org/mailman/listinfo/dev PC-BSD Developers Mailing List]
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
===PC-BSD 9.0 Snapshots===
+
 
+
Every few weeks or so, we are releasing updated "snapshots" of PC-BSD 9, based upon the latest FreeBSD 9-CURRENT. The technical minded, or simply the brave are welcome to download and test these releases.
+
 
+
====Getting the Snapshots====
+
 
+
The current snapshots are available for download from the PC-BSD FTP server:
+
 
+
[ftp://ftp.pcbsd.org/pub/snapshots ftp://ftp.pcbsd.org/pub/snapshots]
+
 
+
The snapshots are available in several different formats, in order to make it easier to find a fit for you.
+
 
+
'''DVD''' - This is the preferred method of installation. This file contains PC-BSD / FreeBSD and all the various window-managers for 9, which you can pick from during the install.
+
 
+
'''CD''' - This is a slimmed down release which includes PC-BSD and the LXDE window manager ONLY. Post-installation it is possible to install other WM's, but they are not included on the CD media and must be installed via the net.
+
 
+
'''DVDLIVE''' - This is a LIVE version of PC-BSD which includes KDE4
+
 
+
'''Bootonly''' - This is a boot-only version of the PC-BSD installation, which will allow installing via the internet or local network.
+
 
+
'''USBFULL''' - This is the USB version of the full DVD image.
+
 
+
'''USBLITE''' - This is the USB version of the CD image.
+
 
+
'''USBLIVE''' - This is the USB version of the DVD-Live image.
+
 
+
'''USB Bootonly''' - This is the USB version of the Bootonly CD image.
+
 
+
 
+
====Network / Internet installation====
+
 
+
Snapshots are currently only available from the PC-BSD FTP server, and not our mirrors. If you wish to do a network installation of a snapshot, you will need to specify the URL manually, such as:
+
 
+
Server: ftp.pcbsd.org
+
 
+
Directory: /pub/snapshots/9-CURRENT-20110414/amd64/netinstall
+
 
+
(Replace the 20110414 with the current snapshot date, and amd64 with i386 if necessary)
+
 
+
====Reporting Bugs====
+
 
+
It is very important to report bugs found in the snapshots, so that there is time to fix them before we get closer to BETA/RC status. Equally important is reporting the bugs to the correct location. The first thing to determine is what type of bug is this? Is it a bug with something specific in FreeBSD? Is this a window-manager bug? Is this a bug in PC-BSD related tools or configuration?
+
 
+
Once you have determined the type of bug, feel free to use the links below to assist in reporting it.
