Rolling is the new buzzword

The MirOS Project is proud to announce that the NetInstall area contains a fresh snapshot of MirBSD-current for the i386 and sparc architectures. In due time, a hand-crafted Live ISO image, with some packages configured and grml-mir added, will be published here, so watch this space ;-)

As someone in IRC already mentioned, MirBSD is currently published on a “rolling release” schedule (although we’ll eventually release MirBSD #11… some day). The snapshots are intended mainly for people to use when installing, or trying out MirBSD, but also as an upgrade aid (so recompiling afterwards (to be even more up to date) is very easy) and a baseline for binary packages (although there have been few (though MuPDF is a recent noteworthy addition) MirPorts packages lately, and I somehow doubt bsiegert@ wants me to gift one of my SPARCstation boxen to him for building pkgsrc® quarterlies).
