[ Sorry - I could have sworn I sent this earlier... ]


The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability
of FreeBSD 6.0-BETA3.

This BETA includes a full set of packages for amd64 and i386 architectures.
Alpha has no packages, sparc64 has everything except for
KDE and Gnome.  The FTP install trees are available.

We encourage people to help with testing so any final bugs can be identified
and worked out.  Availability of ISO images 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_6 (though that will change for the
Release Candidates later).  Problem reports can be submitted using the
send-pr(1) command.

The list of open issues and things still being worked on are on the
todo list:

Since this is the first release of a new branch we only have a rough
idea for some of the dates.  The current rough schedule is available
but most dates are still listed as "TBD - To Be Determined":

Known Issues

Other than the items listed in the todo list there are no known
issues with this BETA.


The BETA3 ISOs are available on most of the FreeBSD Mirror sites.  A list
