and there's now an ALPHA release based on freebsd 6.0-RELEASE.

one thing we've noticed though is a tremendous drop in network performance 
between 4.x and 6.0. on 4.x with the soekris net4801, we're getting 38Mbps 
throughput between both interfaces, but this drops to 20Mbps when 6.0 is 
used. this is a clear apples to apples comparison with the only thing 
changing being the base OS.
