FreeBSD "The next major update of FreeBSD 7, due this December, is in the running to be one of the most impressive FreeBSD releases to date. The ULE scheduler has now reached maturity, leading to significant gains across the board (particularly in server workloads). This new scheduler brings notably impressive performance improvements to both MySQL and PostgreSQL. In the first section of this article, I'm going to take a look at what's new. In the second section, I will discuss what the future holds for FreeBSD beyond the upcoming FreeBSD 7.0 release, including screen shots of the revamped FreeBSD installer 'finstall'."

Well... the review was a bit short but ok.


That's why I called it a preview in the headline ;) .

But it is not a preview of FreeBSD 7.0, as 7.0 is already released. The title of the original article says Review, not Preview.

The article is a nice preview of the features in the upcoming releases after 7.0, however.

Edit: But it seems indeed that the original article is a bit late and should have been published earlier, already before 7.0 was released, and the text is a bit confusing therefore.

Well, your description is far better than most sites that turn up if you google "freebsd 7 review" including the site you linked to. "The next major update of FreeBSD 7, due this December","I’m certainly looking forward to the pending 7.0 release and beyond."
