FreeBSD "The first RC build for the FreeBSD-9.0 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the architectures amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64, and sparc64 are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites. One of the many new features in 9.0 we would like to be tested is the new installer, so we encourage our users to do fresh installation on test systems. Alternatively, users upgrading existing systems may now do so using the freebsd-update(8) utility."

Thin?

Is it just me, or do the recent releases of FreeBSD (especially the .0 releases) since 7.0 seem fairly thin on new features? I am a DragonFly BSD committer and the general consensus in the past has been that where we are behind FreeBSD, we are only behind due to a manpower shortage. Yet lately it seems as if our release notes are as full as theirs are, is the FreeBSD labor pool drying up, or are they just doing a poor job making sure everything interesting makes it into the release notes?
