FreeBSD The third beta of FreeBSD 7.0 has been released. I cannot seem to find any information on changes between the second beta and this one. Additionally, the release schedule doesn't even list a third beta.

I'm running 7-beta2 on 2 servers at home that get moderate workouts and I had it running on my desktop without issue, but needed some Linux only apps and the nvidia driver doesn't support 7 yet. That being said, it worked without issue for a couple of weeks.

I am running nvidia-driver (from ports) in RELENG_7 with no problem.
