FreeBSD The second release candidate of FreeBSD 7.2 has been released. "The second of the two planed Release Candidates for the 7.2-RELEASE cycle is now available. We believe with the exception of the new bce(4) driver not working with lagg(4) all the major issues that have come up from the testing have been addressed. We will work with the vendor to get that issue addressed post-release."

I tried to find a list containing the new features present in 7.2 but couldn't find it. Does anybody know where I can get it? Thank you in advance.

Less to none features but many fixes,updated drivers etc. pp. So it's more a stabilizing release than aa feature release. For the latter you have to wait for 8.0.

I really don't want to troll all FreeBSD releases, because it is a good OS by itself, but it doesn't make sense.

If your cycle revolves around major releases, you don't publicize .1 releases as if they were something.

It's just a mailing list post. You don't see any fancy "ONLY n DAYS TO 7.2" countdown timers on their site either. The "fuzz" is made up completely by the OSnews staff. And you.

One nice feature is multi-IP/IPv6 support in jails: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-jail/2009-February/00072...

I surmise the minor release is made widely known so
persons can test it out, prior to the
final release. Also, persons using only
releases rather than "stable " "current"
branches might want to upgrade.

Many thanks to all involved with this release!

With this release (and the upcoming release of OpenBSD on 1st May), there's lots of "BSD goodness" to try out in the next few days... ;)
