FreeBSD "The first RC build for the FreeBSD-9.0 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the architectures amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64, and sparc64 are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites. One of the many new features in 9.0 we would like to be tested is the new installer, so we encourage our users to do fresh installation on test systems. Alternatively, users upgrading existing systems may now do so using the freebsd-update(8) utility."

New features in the latest 8-STABLE / 9.0-RC1, that I know of off the top of my head:

USB3 support.
GEOM-based fake-RAID support (all those software RAID features on motherboards)
ZFSv28 support.
bunch of stuff around the syscons driver
802.11n wireless support
