FreeBSD News

freebsd.png" align=left>According to this announcement, FreeBSD 5.5-BETA1 and FreeBSD 6.1-BETA1 are now available. Looking at the release schedule, I estimate we'll see FreeBSD 5.5 in late April and FreeBSD 6.1 in early April. The schedule is very ambitious, will 6.2 and 6.3 releases planned for this year too. Remember that FreeBSD 5.5 is probably the last in the 5.x tree.

I'd like to thank Royce Williams for pointing out that Colin Percival has been building SMP kernels for freebsd-update. Here is the announcement. This is great news for people who want to run stock FreeBSD installs and stay up-to-date with the SECURITY branch on SMP hardware.
