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:


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 at 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)

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.


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