At the moment we're pushing the latest illumos kernel into beta2.
Sources are out, as a fork of illumos code base, with our custom changes.
We've moved to git just these days, and this will allow us to pull latest illumos periodically.
Within weeks we will publish the beta2 iso.

Thank you for the great work you are doing. Do you intend to prepare a
full ISO image for beta2, and if so, approximately when might that be

The following instructions will allow you to install the current beta1 iso,
then switch to the beta2
for testing the new features and corrections.
This will allow us to receive your inputs and have the beta2 iso contain all
that is requested.
- Download and install the beta1 iso
- Run package manager and do a full update from the original preconfigured
beta repo
- Restart the system
- Add the new repo "http://pkg.sonicle.com/xstreamos-beta2/" to the
sonicle.com publisher
- Remove the old repo "http://pkg.sonicle.com/xstreamos-beta/" from the
sonicle.com publisher
- For VBox installations: before next step, be sure to remove vbox
additions, the new update will have an update Xorg.
- Do a full update
- For VBox installations: install additions from this
- Restart the system
- Original beta1 iso did not require gvfs, so this is not installed during
update, use next step for this
- To enable VFS urls on file manager, install
pkg://sonicle.com/library/gnome/gvfs and verify you have
pkg:/service/network/samba for smb urls
pkg searches may not work from time to time, when we are updating/adding
packages to the repo.
If you need to search and it's not working, just send an email here, and we
will run a rebuild.
