FreeBSD KenSmith announced the immediate availability of FreeBSD 7.2-RC1 in the FreeBSD-stable mailing list. "The first of two planned Release Candidates for the FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE cycle is now available. Testing of some of the recent work would be particularly appreciated." The release schedule states that the final release is to be expected early May, at which point we'll cover FreeBSD 7.2 in much more detail.

Binary packages != ports. And if it comes to sources-based management Debian is a single failure. However if we're talking about management of binary packages, then pacman from ArchLinux is the way to go. Why should an OS like FreeBSD that follows the KISS principle use something like apt? Prone to failure, overloaded with scripts etc.? No you're talking about the past. But then, most people chosing FreeBSD are quiet happy about the ports and the control they get while building the software. And I don't speak about performance, but control of features, patches, quality compared to inconsistencies among binary packages etc.
