This is a general package update to the STABLE release repository based upon TrueOS 12-Stable.
FreeBSD has broken their “vesa” driver which is required for legacy-boot systems in the Trident installer. If you have the option, you will need to enable booting via “EFI” or “UEFI” in order to go through the graphical installer.
If you already have an installed Trident system with legacy boot and which currently uses an NVIDIA or AMD graphics driver, it is still safe to upgrade your system to this release (only the “vesa” driver is currently broken, which is used for no-GPU and some Intel-GPU systems). You can run
about from a terminal to see which GPU driver your system is currently using.

We are currently working on an alternative installation method for legacy-boot systems. Stay tuned for more information.
A large Thank you to CURRENT Trident user “Nor Way” who tracked down the options to get the XFCE desktop working and available again without the hal dependency.
