FreeBSD 5.4-BETA1 Available
I am happy to report that FreeBSD 5.4-BETA1 has been announced. The release schedule has not yet been updated, and it doesn't seem to match the process currently underway. Looking back at the 5.3 release schedule, we see that BETA1 is the start to the FreeBSD release process. After a series of BETAs we will see RCs (release candidates). I think 5.4 is a few weeks late, so I expect to see the final RELEASE version ready in late April or early May.
