Building off the recent FreeBSD 10.2 release candidates is the first RC of the upcoming PC-BSD 10.2 desktop.

PC-BSD 10.2-RC1 was released this morning and is based off FreeBSD 10.2 while bringing many improvements to its installer, uses iocage for its jail management backend, the disk manager GUI is now available via the installer GUI, there's improved fonts and better support for 4K displays, an enterprise package repository option that's locked to consistent package versions, and various other package updates.

PC-BSD 10.2-RC1 also has the new Lumina Desktop 0.8.6 available.

More details on PC-BSD 10.2-RC1, which will likely be released as stable alongside FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE later this month, can be found via the PC-BSD blog.
