FreeBSD "FreeBSD is back to its incredible performance and now can take advantage of multi-core/CPUs systems very well... So well that some benchmarks on both Intel and AMD systems showed release 7.0 being faster than Linux 2.6 when running PostreSQL or MySQL. Federico Biancuzzi interviewed two dozen developers to discuss all the cool details of FreeBSD 7.0: networking and SMP performance, SCTP support, the new IPSEC stack, virtualization, monitoring frameworks, ports, storage limits and a new journaling facility, what changed in the accounting file format, jemalloc(), ULE, and more."

RELEASE seems to be out =D

Yes! Yes! Yes! =^_^=

Before I continue being happy... erm... which FTP path did you take the listing from? The FreeBSD project's main web site does not mention 7.0-RELEASE yet.

Production Release 6.3
Upcoming Release 7.0 - RC2
