I can vouch for that - I have just been bitten by the fact that the mini
iso image marked as 4.8-RELEASE does NOT appear to contain 4.8-RELEASE....
It is marked up as 4.8-RELEASE, but loads of the files are old versions.
To reiterate: DO NOT DOWNLOAD 4.8-RELEASE until it is announced.
Less haste more speed, I guess. The only reason I tried to do it,
though was because the snapshots on snapshots.jp.freebsd.org stop on
the 29th, and I wanted the sendmail updates.
