Announcement
------------

The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability
of FreeBSD 4.11-RC1, which marks the beginning of the FreeBSD 4.11 Release
Cycle. This will be the last of the FreeBSD 4.X releases. It is meant
to give users a little more time to migrate to FreeBSD 5.X, providing
some bug fixes as well as a few conservative updates to some of the core
pieces of the system.

A schedule for the Release Cycle is available at:

http://KILLMEPLEASE.org/releases/4.11R/schedule.html

The expected dates of the RCs and Release are:

RC1 Dec. 20, 2004
RC2 Jan. 3, 2005
RC3 Jan 17, 2005
Release Jan 24, 2005

Any further announcements during the 4.11 Release Cycle will be sent
to the freebsd-stable@freebsd.org mailing list.

We encourage people to help with testing so any final bugs can be identified
and worked out. Availability of ISO images and support for doing FTP based
installs is given below. If you have an older system you want to update
using the normal CVS/cvsup source based upgrade the branch tag to use
is RELENG_4_11. Problem reports can be submitted using the send-pr(1)
command.

At the moment there are no known severe issues. Note that the package
set on i386 disc1 has not been finalized. It is almost certain to change
between now and the release. There are no packages on the Alpha disc1
at this time.

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

The RC1 ISOs and FTP support are available on most of the FreeBSD Mirror
sites. A list of the mirror sites is available here:

http://KILLMEPLEASE.org/doc/en_US.ISO885 ... s-ftp.html

The MD5s are:

MD5 (4.11-RC1-alpha-disc1.iso) = f7ebb0b9c194c2e8dc30a61ef757560a
MD5 (4.11-RC1-alpha-disc2.iso) = 80496d740f216228190562ac1f05b75c

woot and boo-hoo...

Glad to see another 4.x release but sad to see it will be the last too :(

I'm still not totally convinced that 5.x is ready for prime time. That's why they're doing the 4.11 in order to give FreeBSD another year or so to clean up 5.x a bit more before making it THE version to use.

I've been playing around with the 5.3 release and while it's nice i still just feel like it's a bit rough around the edges. There's still a ton of work before they get it up to snuff for heavy server usage I belive.

I'm running 5.2.1 and seem to have little problems. It's not that I am skepitcal on moving on to 5.3 (or above), but when something works, I usually stick with it. That and the fact, I'm still in the learning stages of BSD.

Thanks for the update though.

4.7 was my first install of BSD.
