FreeBSD Status Report First Quarter 2006

The FreeBSD Status Report First Quarter 2006 has been posted. Notable items include Colin Percival meeting his fundraising goal -- thank you! Remember that BSDCan 2006 takes place 12-13 May in Ottawa. I will be elsewhere that week and unable to attend.

The Status Report lists lots of cool developments that are worth perusing. I noticed the End-of-life security schedule says FreeBSD 5.4 will no longer be supported after 30 May 2006.

For what it's worth, the EoL for FreeBSD 5.4 might be extended, depending upon the FreeBSD 5.5 release schedule; I want to allow some time for people to upgrade to FreeBSD 5.5 before we drop support for 5.4 entirely.

That said, it won't be a very large window, so anyone using FreeBSD 5.4 should plan on upgrading very soon after FreeBSD 5.5 is released.
