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."

It's not just you.

There are several current and former FreeBSD users who believe that the project has stagnated, some going so far as to say that if you took out all the code that is being imported from OpenSolaris, the project looks like NetBSD did a few years ago.

It's also no small surprise that a DragonFly developer would point this out, as this project and OpenBSD seem to be where all the innovation is happening these days.
