Upcoming Releases Schedule...

We're about to start the release cycle for FreeBSD-7.1 and FreeBSD-6.4.
The proposed schedule for the "major events" of the cycle is:
Freeze August 29
BETA September 1
Branch September 6
6.4-RC1 September 8
7.1-RC1 September 15
6.4-RC2 September 22
7.1-RC2 September 29
6.4-REL October 6
7.1-REL October 13
I haven't posted the schedule on the Web site yet, I'll try to get that
done over the weekend.
On Monday I'll switch RELENG_7 and RELENG_6 over to say they are
7.1-PRERELEASE and 6.4-PRERELEASE respectively as a heads-up that there
will likely be higher-than-normal developer activity MFC-ing stuff
before code freeze starts. Odds get higher that if you do updates using
RELENG_7/RELENG_6 branches during this period you *might* wind up with a
tree that isn't quite right because you happened to catch it part way
through a developer doing a multi-step commit.
We had been procrastinating on saying definitively whether we thought
6.4-REL would be the last of the RELENG_6 releases to see how well
things went with 7.X (if 7.0-REL was a total disaster we'd have
considered doing a 6.5-REL). It seems that 7.0-REL went well and
RELENG_7 in general seems to be in good shape so we now expect 6.4-REL
to be the last of the RELENG_6 releases.
