FreeBSD FeeBSD 7.0-beta1 has been released, with 6.3-beta1 on its way. "We have entered the final phases of the FreeBSD-7.0 Release cycle which also means the beginning of the FreeBSD-6.3 Release cycle. Because the people who support the ports for FreeBSD also need to go through a freeze cycle as part of releases we had decided to combine the two releases to try and minimize the impact on the ports maintainers."

It's GNOME 2.20.1 and not 2.2.1, and I'm sure it's a typo, but if not one must say that the more than 7 years difference between the two releases is quite significant ;)
