FreeBSD 7.2-RC1 Available

The first of two planned Release Candidates for the FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE
cycle is now available.  Testing of some of the recent work would be
particularly appreciated.  This includes:

	- bce(4) updated (there is a report that lagg(4) does
	  not work after the update, fixing that may need to be
	  done as an Errata Notice after the release)
	- testing of the threading libraries
	- amr(4) should be fixed

A fix for the "vm_page_insert: page already inserted" panics has been
committed to RELENG_7_1 this morning so it missed the 7.2-RC1 builds.
If you wind up being hit by that you can try a normal source based
update to the current state of RELENG_7_1 and that problem should go

We have slipped by two days at this point but otherwise are on track
with the target release schedule which is here:

We continue to watch for problems both on the mailing lists and in Gnats
but at this point we know of nothing we consider show-stopper calibre.
Unless something that bad does surface as a result of 7.2-RC1 testing we
should be sticking to the schedule.

The ISO images and FTP install trees are available on the FreeBSD Mirror
sites. Using the primary site as an example:${arch}/ISO-IMAGES/7.2/

where ${arch} is one of amd64 i386, ia64, pc98, or sparc64.  The
builds for powerpc are still in progress, it should become available
in a day or two.

Checksums for the ISO images are at the bottom of this message.  The
amd64 and i386 sets include a *preliminary* set of packages.

If you would like to do a source-based update to 7.2-RC1 from an
already installed machine you can update your tree to RELENG_7_1 using
normal cvsup/csup methods.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases.  Systems running 7.0-RELEASE,
7.1-RELEASE, or 7.2-BETA1 can upgrade as follows:
# freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.2-RC1

During this process, FreeBSD Update may ask the user to help by merging
some configuration files or by confirming that the automatically performed
merging was done correctly.
# freebsd-update install

The system must be rebooted with the newly installed kernel before continuing.
# shutdown -r now
After rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to install the new
userland components, and the system needs to be rebooted again:

# freebsd-update install
# shutdown -r now

Users of earlier FreeBSD releases (FreeBSD 6.x) can also use freebsd-update to
upgrade to FreeBSD 7.2-RC1, but will be prompted to rebuild all third-party
applications (e.g., anything installed from the ports tree) after the second
invocation of "freebsd-update install", in order to handle differences in the
system libraries between FreeBSD 6.x and FreeBSD 7.x.
