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.
Presently the 10.1 Table Of Contents is being "reconstructed" becoming incrementally fixed while the other handbook versions may have various breakage.

(Sorry for the inconvenience)

The following features have been added since PC-BSD® 9.1 was released on December 18, 2012. Users who wish to test or take advantage of these features can either install or upgrade to a rolling release. Once the upcoming 9.2 release cycle begins, these features will be incorporated into that version of PC-BSD®.

Here is a list of the new features:

  • EasyPBI has been revamped as version 2, making it even easier to create complex PBIs.
  • The GDM login manager has been replaced with the BSD-licensed PCDM.
  • The system has changed from the traditional ports system to pkgng and all of the PC-BSD® utilities that deal with installing or updating software now use pkgng. This means that you can now safely install non-PBI software from the command line and that a system upgrade will no longer delete non-PBI software.
  • The PC-BSD® utilities that deal with installing software or updates now use aria2 which greatly increases download speed over slow links. aria2 achieves this by downloading a file from multiple sources over multiple protocols in order to utilize the maximum download bandwidth. The pc-pkg command has been added as a wrapper script to pkg. Use pc-pkg if you wish to increase your download speed when installing or upgrading pkgng packages.
  • The system now uses /etc/rc.conf.pcbsd as the default, operating system version of the RC configuration file. Do not edit this file, but instead make any needed customizations to /etc/rc.conf. When the system is upgraded, changes to default system services will be placed in /etc/rc.conf.pcbsd and will not affect any settings and overrides which have been placed into /etc/rc.conf.
  • The initial installation screen now provides an option to load a saved installation configuration file from a FAT-formatted USB stick.
  • The installation summary screen now provides an option to save this installation configuration to a FAT-formatted USB stick so that it can be re-used at a later time.
