The TrueOS project creates a cutting-edge, rolling release operating system based on FreeBSD. The TrueOS project is looking at making a number of changes in the coming months, both to its release cycle and init software. The TrueOS developers plan to support two separate init implementation, the classic FreeBSD init system (RC) and the OpenRC init implementation. OpenRC is expected to be faster and provide some new features while the RC init software will allow TrueOS users to maintain stronger compatibility with FreeBSD. The TrueOS developers will also begin maintaining two separate project branches, STABLE and UNSTABLE: "As we've continued working on TrueOS, we've heard a significant portion of the community asking for a more stable 'STABLE' release of TrueOS, maybe something akin to an old PC-BSD version release. In order to meet that need, we're redefining the TrueOS STABLE branch a bit. STABLE releases are now expected to follow a six month schedule, with more testing and lots of polish between releases. This gives users the option to step back a little from the 'cutting edge' of development, but still enjoy many of the benefits of the 'rolling release' style and the useful elements of FreeBSD Current. Critical updates like emergency patches and utility bug fixes are still expected to be pushed to STABLE on a case-by-case basis, but again with more testing and polish." Additional information can be found in this blog post.

该TrueOS项目创建一个基于尖端,滚动发布操作系统FreeBSD的。TrueOS项目正在考虑在未来几个月内对其发布周期和初始化软件进行一些更改。TrueOS开发人员计划支持两个单独的init实现,即经典的FreeBSD init系统(RC)和OpenRC init实现。OpenRC预计会更快,并提供一些新功能,而RC init软件将允许TrueOS用户与FreeBSD保持更强的兼容性。TrueOS开发人员还将开始维护两个单独的项目分支:STABLE和UNSTABLE:“ 随着我们继续致力于TrueOS,我们听到了很大一部分社区要求更稳定的”STABLE“TrueOS版本,可能是一个类似于旧PC-BSD版本的东西。为了满足这一需求,我们正在重新定义TrueOS STABLE分支。STABLE版本预计将按照六个月的时间表进行,在版本之间进行更多的测试和大量的抛光。这使用户可以从开发的“尖端”退一步,但仍然享受“滚动释放”风格和FreeBSD Current的有用元素的许多优点。紧急更新(如紧急补丁和实用程序错误修复)仍然预计将逐个推送到STABLE,但再次进行更多的测试和抛光。

Housekeeping Update: Infrastructure and TrueOS changes

by Tim | May 26, 2017 | Announcements, Preview | 0 comments

We’ve had quite a few changes over the past month, and we wanted to clue everyone in on all the happenings.

Office Change

Most of the TrueOS developers work for iX Systems in their Tennessee office. Last month, the Tennessee office was moved to a different location across town. As part of the move, we need to move all our servers. We’re still getting some of the infrastructure sorted before moving the servers, so please bear with us as we continue this process.

Another update is the addition of Zack to the team! Zack is a summer intern who will be working on our Qt projects and other general work for TrueOS. He’s already hit the ground running by doing some badly needed OpenRC conversions, but a warm welcome to Zack as he works with us over this summer!

TrueOS STABLE change

As we’ve continued working on TrueOS, we’ve heard a significant portion of the community asking for a more stable “STABLE” release of TrueOS, maybe something akin to an old PC-BSD version release. In order to meet that need, we’re redefining the TrueOS STABLE branch a bit. STABLE releases are now expected to follow a six month schedule, with more testing and lots of polish between releases. This gives users the option to step back a little from the “cutting edge” of development, but still enjoy many of the benefits of the “rolling release” style and the useful elements of FreeBSD Current.

Critical updates like emergency patches and utility bug fixes are still expected to be pushed to STABLE on a case-by-case basis, but again with more testing and polish. This also applies to version updates of the Lumina and SysAdm projects. New, released work from those projects will be tested and added to STABLE outside the 6 month window as well.

The UNSTABLE branch continues to be our experimental “cutting edge” track, and users who want to follow along with our development and help us or FreeBSD test new features are still encouraged to follow the UNSTABLE track by checking that setting in their TrueOS Update Manager.

Currently, we are looking to release both STABLE and UNSTABLE updates sometime next week. Stay tuned for that announcement!

RC vs OpenRC: Why not both?
 
As TrueOS evolves, it is becoming clearer that one role of the system is to function as a “test platform” for FreeBSD. In order to better serve this role, TrueOS will support both OpenRC and the FreeBSD RC init systems, giving users the choice to use either system. While the full functionality isn’t quite ready for the next STABLE update, it is planned for addition after the last bit of work and testing is complete. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post with all the details of this change, along with instructions how to switch between RC and OpenRC.

Once again, we want to thank all our awesome contributors and users!

管家更新:基础设施和TrueOS更改

由蒂姆 | 2017年5月26日 | 公告,预览 | 0评论

在过去一个月里,我们已经做了很多的改变,我们想在所有的事情中提醒大家。
 
办公室变更
 
大多数TrueOS开发人员都在田纳西州的办公室工作。上个月,田纳西州的办公室搬到了不同的地方。作为移动的一部分,我们需要移动所有的服务器。在移动服务器之前,我们仍然会收到一些基础设施的排序,所以请继续执行此过程。
另一个更新是Zack加入团队!Zack是一名暑期实习生,他将在我们的Qt项目和TrueOS的其他一般工作。他已经通过做了一些不必要的OpenRC转换,而对Zack进行了一些热烈的欢迎,因为他在今年夏天与我们合作!
 
TrueOS STABLE 更改
 
正如我们继续致力于TrueOS一样,我们已经听到社区的很大一部分要求更稳定的“STABLE”版本的TrueOS,也许类似于旧的PC-BSD版本。为了满足这一需求,我们正在重新定义TrueOS STABLE分支。STABLE版本预计将按照六个月的时间表进行,在版本之间进行更多的测试和大量的抛光。这使用户可以从开发的“尖端”退一步,但仍然享受“滚动版”风格和FreeBSD Current的有用元素的许多优点。
紧急更新(如紧急补丁和实用程序错误修复)仍然预计将逐个推送到STABLE,但再次进行更多的测试和抛光。这也适用于Lumina和SysAdm项目的版本更新。新的,从这些项目发布的工作将在6个月的窗口以外的测试和添加到STABLE。
不间断的分支机构继续是我们的实验“前沿”轨道,而且还希望跟随我们的开发和帮助我们或FreeBSD测试新功能的用户通过检查TrueOS Update Manager中的设置来遵循UNSTABLE轨迹。
目前,我们正在寻求在下周发布稳定和不稳定的更新。请关注该公告!
 
RC vs OpenRC:为什么不这两个?
 
随着 TrueOS 的发展,越来越清楚,系统的一个角色是作为FreeBSD的“测试平台”。为了更好地发挥这一作用,TrueOS将支持OpenRC和FreeBSD RC init系统,使用户可以选择使用任一系统。虽然完整功能尚未准备好进行下一次STABLE更新,但计划在最后一点工作和测试完成后再添加。请继续关注即将发布的博客文章,其中包含此更改的所有详细信息,以及如何在RC和OpenRC之间切换的说明。

再次,我们要感谢所有我们真棒的贡献者和用户!
