TrueOS Stable is Update to 2022-02-22

TrueOS has as its goals to be an easy-to-install-and-use desktop and server operating system, based on FreeBSD. To accomplish this, it provides a graphical installation to enable even UNIX novices to easily install and get it running. It pre-configures desktop environments, video, sound, and networking so that the desktop can be used immediately. A graphical software installation program makes installing pre-built software as easy as other popular operating systems.

The TrueOS team has released a new snapshot of the operating system’s Desktop and Server editions. The new snapshot includes several bug fixes, a few new services and package updates. TrueOS 2022-02-22 also includes support for automounting devices and a new jail management utility
