FreeBSD "The 7.0-BETA4 builds are now available. If you would like to use cvsup to update an older machine the branch tag to use is still RELENG_7. For users of FreeBSD Update due to some last-minute bumps in system libraries, installed third-party applications must be recompiled as per normal for a 'major' upgrade, even if upgrading from an earlier 7.0 BETA."

Not sure, but I'm sure they said they wanted 7 out by the end of the year, so maybe they are having one or two problems.

On a side note, I have been running an early FreeBSD 7 (Current) since August with the ULE scheduler and it's excellent, runs extremely well. Have only needed to shut it down once, and that was because I need to rebuild the kernel to support USB drives. I keep meaning to update my source tree and rebuild it, but haven't got round to it yet.
