    Hello,
    Until now we have an gnome iso with working installer.
    Localization is not finished ( desktop environment is localized , keymap is but until now no keymap variant).

    Hello,
    We have finished keyboard localization.
    Keyboard layout is ok and also keyboard variant for desired language.
    Please stay tuned.

    I would like to thank Angelescu Ovidiu for all of his work. Due to his efforts there is now a buildable ISO with a graphical installer on GitHub. Unfortunely due to other obligations I have been unable to participate in the DesktopBSD project for some time, and I have resigned from the project some time ago privately. Angelescu has been continuing development in my absence. For future inquiries about the project please talk to Angelescuo, or EchoD. I no longer have any involvement, or affiliation with DesktopBSD. Thanks.

    I386 iso can be released also but for i386 arch:
    1) UEFI won't work because is used only for amd64 arch
    A i386 iso will boot only in BIOS mode.
    2) An old i386 box won't be able to run in a decent way gnome because gnome needs at least 2G ram.

    Thanks for all your hard work Angelescu, I'm sorry I wasn't able to participate. DesktopBSD is an awesome project and one I sorely wish I had some time for.

    Hello Ovidiu. Is that really true? We hoped for the revival and development. The second major developer resigned from the project! It is sad.

    I have reconsidered some facts and I guess we should continue.
    Hope it will be a good idea.
    Until now we are able to build iso's with lxde too.

    Actual development status is:
    We can build iso's with gnome, kde, xfce , lxde, mate, lumina, fluxbox and even iso without Xorg.
    Build scripts have caching capabilities.

    Is this roadmap still being worked on? Does anyone mind sharing with me the status of it? Is DesktopBSD going to become a GTK3 based system that sits on top of NextBSD?

    Is there a replacement project? Or has everyone moved on to another one?
