Hello All,

I was wondering if we can get updates on the roadmap for TrueOS?

The blog is a little dry,

I'd bug in telegram (closed, but still listed on the TrueOS site), or on Freenode IRC (need invite).

Cheers,

Mark.

Hey Mark,

I logged into Telegram yesterday and just saw the channel was closed too. I was pretty disappointed myself as I didn't know that was the plan. I've reached out to the TrueOS devs and let them know that I'd be happy to keep the channel open and maintain it myself but I have not received a conclusive response back to my messages.

TrueOS is still under active development but we don't have the need to blog nearly as much these days. I'll ask the devs if there's an updated roadmap and will pass the message along when I hear back.

Thanks!

The Telegram Messenger page link at the TrueOS website:
https://t.me/TrueOSCommunity
leads to this:

Notice: TrueOS community support has moved to the iXsystems "umbrella".
This channel is being suspended and TrueOS specific issues should be raised on https://www.ixsystems.com/community/ .

The TrueOS based Project Trident and GhostBSD distributions maintain separate community support channels on Telegram at:

* Project Trident (https://t.me/ProjectTrident)

* GhostBSD (https://t.me/ghostbsd)

Not sure if Telegram Messenger was the right thing to communicate about a BSD distro anyway, as I didn't find a way to install it on my TrueOS installation, so I switched to my Linux partition and installed Telegram Messenger and got the above message.

My research finds:

The download page at the main TrueOs website:
https://www.trueos.org/downloads/
Contains no hot web links: DEAD, just TEXT & pictures (pretty & professional, but no live links).

The link at DistroWatch: https://distrowatch.com/?newsid=10156
Gives: 404 Not Found

However:
https://download.trueos.org/
becomes...
https://pkg.trueos.org/
Index of /62993/trueos/
This has version of TrueOS Stable 18.12 iso 15 Dec 2018
Plus version of TrueOS Unstable iso 17 Jun 2019

The way I got my copy of TrueOS-Desktop-18.03-x64-USB.img.torrent
was at http://www.pcds.fi -> http://www.pcds.fi/download-s/
and drill down from there.
There's a lot of operating systems there at PCFS.FI, and I wanted several things:
BSD, .img for usb (not an .iso for a cd), and a torrent link.

Not sure what is happening here, but finding the 17Jun2019 iso was a good sign.
Maybe I will try to burn a DVD iso boot disk.

Cheers,
