The updated freebsd-update script can be downloaded from my web
server on pre-{6.3-RC1, 7.0-BETA3} systems, as I explain in the
instructions I provided on using freebsd-update to perform such

My understanding is that the upcoming release announcements will
point to these instructions (just like the 6.2-RELEASE announcement
pointed to my 6.1-to-6.2 upgrade script).
