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."

RE: VMware's VMI

Not to my knowledge. As a matter of fact, I am not aware of any virtualization software that makes use of the new Virtualization capable processors for FreeBSD. Kqemu (from the QEMU) project was to get changes from the Linux-KVM but does not seem it has. If you are looking for virtualization, stick to Linux (with VMware, KVM, VirtualBox, etc.). I keep FreeBSD on the Server, but Linux for the desktop.

Note: VirtualBox is supposed to have something for FreeBSD but have not heard of anyhting yet. There seem to be alpha code but seems broken.
