Release prereleased

The CVS tag for the next release, “DragonFly_RELEASE_1_2” has been placed, which means commits are OK again.

There is a prerelease version of 1.2 on via HTTP or FTP, and also at via HTTP. Here’s the MD5:

MD5 (dfly-20050406-pre1.2.iso.gz) = 9b382c84e629b391bd4ce38c7ca724bd

If you can bear waiting, I would advise waiting for the official release later this week, just in case something is found in the next day or two.

pkgsrc build space needed

Jeremy C. Reed is looking for a DragonFly host to use for bulk-building pkgsrc. He’d need about 20G of space, and an open port for reports through http.

I have a computer for it, but no connection yet. He mentions in his post (linked above) that currently, just over 40% of packages in pkgsrc build on DragonFly, which works out to over 2,000 programs.
