Dear FreeBSD community,

After the recent reminder about the upcoming EoL for FreeBSD 9.2, many
of you have expressed concerns over the fact that support for 9.2 would
end before 9.1, and over the short time available to upgrade from 9.2 to
9.3.  As a result of your feedback, we have decided to postpone the EoL
date for 9.2 to December 31, 2014.

Note that due to technical limitations, freebsd-update(8) will continue
to warn about the approaching EoL for 9.2 until the next errata notice
or security advisory is published.

A complete list of supported branches and their EoL dates is available
on http://security.freebsd.org/.
