Sorry for the inconvenience.  Known Navigation header breakage of “Previous:” and “Next:” links, the Table Of Contents may be the solution for those.
However, unfortunately, the Table of contents may also be broken, and there may be other unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.

==== 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.
