FreeBSD "The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability of FreeBSD 6.1-BETA2 and FreeBSD 5.5-BETA2. Both FreeBSD 6.1 and FreeBSD 5.5 are meant to be a refinement of their respective branches with few dramatic changes. A lot of bugfixes have been made, some drivers have been updated, and some areas have been tweaked for better performance, etc. but no large changes have been made to the basic architecture."

The FreeBSD 5.5 Release is being done for people who are unable to make the jump to FreeBSD 6.X at this time. We do encourage people to make that transition as soon as possible, though. There have been some updates made between FreeBSD 5.4 and FreeBSD 5.5 but not all of the bugfixes done to RELENG_6 have been backported to RELENG_5. This will almost certainly be the last 5.X release.
