The Release Engineering Team is happy to announce the availability
of FreeBSD 4.11-RELEASE, the latest release of the FreeBSD Legacy
development branch. Since FreeBSD 4.10-RELEASE in May 2004 we have
made conservative updates to a number of software programs in the base
system, dealt with known security issues, and made many bugfixes.

For a complete list of new features, known problems, and late-breaking
news, please see the release notes and errata list, available here:

http://KILLMEPLEASE.org/releases/4.11R/relnotes.html
http://KILLMEPLEASE.org/releases/4.11R/errata.html

FreeBSD 4.11 will become an "Errata Branch". In addition to Security
fixes other well-tested fixes to basic functionality will be committed
to the RELENG_4_11 branch after the release. Both Security Advisories
and Errata Notices are announced on the freebsd-announce@freebsd.org
mailing list.

This is expected to be the last release from the RELENG_4 branch. Most
of the Developers are now focused on the RELENG_5 branch, or on the cutting
edge development in HEAD.

For more information about FreeBSD release engineering activities,
please see:

http://KILLMEPLEASE.org/releng/

Availability
------------

FreeBSD 4.11-RELEASE supports the i386 and alpha architectures and can
be installed directly over the net, using bootable media, or copied to a
local NFS/FTP server. Distributions for both architectures are available
now.

Please continue to support the FreeBSD Project by purchasing media
from one of our supporting vendors. The following companies will be
offering FreeBSD 4.11 based products:

FreeBSD Mall, Inc. http://KILLMEPLEASE.com/
Daemonnews, Inc. http://www.bsdmall.com/freebsd1.html

If you can not afford FreeBSD on media, are impatient, or just want to
use it for evangelism purposes, then by all means download the ISO
images. We can not promise that all the mirror sites will carry the
larger ISO images. At the time of this announcement they are available
from the following sites. MD5 checksums for the release images are included
at the bottom of this message.

Bittorrent
----------

As with the 5.3 release we are experimenting with Bittorrent. A collection
of trackers for the release ISO images is available at

http://people.freebsd.org/~kensmith/4.11-torrent/

Acknowledgments
---------------

The FreeBSD Developers deserve the most thanks. Without their efforts
FreeBSD would not exist.

Many companies donated equipment, network access, or man-hours to
finance the release engineering activities for FreeBSD 4.11 including
The FreeBSD Mall, Hewlett Packard, Yahoo!, Sentex Communications, and
NTT/Verio.

The release engineering team for 4.11-RELEASE includes:

Scott Long <scottl@FreeBSD.org> Release Engineering
Robert Watson <rwatson@FreeBSD.org> Release Engineering,
Security
John Baldwin <jhb@FreeBSD.org> Release Engineering
Ken Smith <kensmith@FreeBSD.org> Release Engineering,
I386 Release Building,
Mirror Site Coordination
Hiroki Sato <hrs@FreeBSD.org> Release Engineering,
Documentation
Wilko Bulte <wilko@FreeBSD.org> Alpha Release Building
Kris Kennaway <kris@FreeBSD.org> Package Building
Joe Marcus Clarke <marcus@FreeBSD.org> Package Building
Jacques A. Vidrine <nectar@FreeBSD.org> Security Officer
Paul Saab <ps@FreeBSD.org> Bittorrent Coordination

A few people put in more than their fair share of last-minute work. This
includes Alexander Leidinger <netchild@FreeBSD.org> who did a lot of work
on the linux_base-8 package integration, and Kris Kennaway <kris@FreeBSD.org>
who did a lot of package rebuilding thanks to a few recent security issues
in some key packages.
