The FreeBSD 8.3 release process is under way, you can view the schedule,

As has become the custom, a ports feature freeze is anticipated to be
announced with the RC1 date, tentatively scheduled at this time
for March 2, 2012.  Watch for further announcements as we get closer.

During the feature freeze, committers are expected to be conservative with
their commits, that is, no sweeping commits, infrastructure changes, or
commits to ports with a high number of dependencies.
