taken from the front page of www.pcbsd.org, notice "the version 7.1 contains..."

Version 7.1 contains a number of enhancements, improvements and bugfixes from the 7.0 series.
FreeBSD 7.2-Pre


Thanks, I see now: "7.2-Pre" refers to a development point in 7-STABLE prior to 7.2-RELEASE (because that's not released yet), but it's close to.

When FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE is out, maybe the PC-BSD developers offer a minor upgrade for the "OS part" of their system to catch up to the FreeBSD release.

Read the actual press release. It reads:

"PC-BSD 7.1 is built upon the FreeBSD 7.1-STABLE operating system."

So the OSNews news item is perfectly correct.
