FreeBSD The FreeBSD project has released the second release candidate for FreeBSD 7.0. "We sincerely hope this will be the last of the public tests for 7.0 and that the -RELEASE builds will start in about a week and a half. If bug(s) considered big enough to be show-stoppers are found we will of course reconsider but hopefully we're in good enough shape now to proceed with the release."

Do we still use "tag=RELENG_7_0" or do we now use "tag=RELENG_7"?

While RELENG_7_0 will bring to 7.0-RELEASE and its possbible patches (e, g, 7.0-RELEASE-p1), RELENG_7 will take you much further to the upcoming releases in the -7- branch (e. g. 7.1-RELEASE and 7.1-RELEASE-p3).

RELENG_X gets you FreebSD X-STABLE, the continuous development branch that each release is taken from.

RELENG_X_Y gets you FreeBSD X.Y-RELEASE, plus any security fixes that are available for FreeBSD X.Y-RELEASE

RELENG_X_Y_Z_RELEASE gets you FreeBSD X.Y.Z-RELEASE, the exact same bits that go on the release CDs.

Fill in X, Y, and Z as needed.
