Unleashed 1.2 Released

This is the third release of Unleashed - an operating system fork of
illumos.  For more information about Unleashed itself and the download
links, see our website [1].

This release is relatively light on changes.  The major changes since 1.1
are (1) `uname -p` and `uname -m` now return "amd64", and (2) the removal of
Solaris auditing support (bsm).

As part of the uname changes, we defined the GNU triplet for Unleashed as
"`uname -m`-unknown-unleashed`uname -r`" (e.g., amd64-unknown-unleashed1.2).

As before, you can install the system from scratch using the ISO or USB
images, or update using pkg(1).

To update an existing system, download the p5p and run:

# pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g file:///path/to/unleashed-1.2.p5p unleashed
# pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g file:///path/to/unleashed-1.2.p5p userland
# pkg update
# reboot

You will also want to rebuild any additional software you may have built.

With all this said, give the release a try.  If you find any issues or want
to contribute, let us know on IRC (#unleashed on Freenode) or the mailing

Happy hacking!
