FreeBSD 9.0-BETA1 Available...

The first BETA build of the 9.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available.
Since this will be the first release on a brand new branch I'll
cross-post the announcements on both -current and -stable.  But just
so you know most of the developers active in head pay more attention
to the -current mailing list.  If you notice problems you can report
them through the normal Gnats PR system or on the -current mailing list.

The 9.0-RELEASE cycle will be tracked here:

Those of you familiar with FreeBSD release schedules will not be shocked
to notice we're already a bit behind schedule... :-)

ISO images for the following architectures are available:

	amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64, and sparc64

Due to lack of support for boot floppies and issues with the new
ATA_CAM infrastructure the pc98 architecture is being dropped to
Tier-2 status and at this time there are no plans for 9.0 builds
for pc98.  I just got the sparc64 architecture ISOs loaded on
ftp-master shortly before starting to type this so it may take
a day or so to propagate out to the mirror sites.  MD5/SHA256 checksums
for the images are at the bottom of this message.

If you would like to use csup/cvsup mechanisms to access the source
tree the branch tag to use is "." (head).  If you would like to access
the source tree via SVN it is "svn://".

Note that some time between now and BETA2 we will finalize the list of
shared libraries that need to have their versions bumped (only a subset
of libraries have been converted to symbol-versioning) and take care
of doing the bumps.  So at the moment packages built for current should
work.  But when the bump happens you will need to recompile any
applications you have installed and there will likely be a delay for
suitable pre-built packages to become available on the FTP sites.  Sorry
in advance for that hassle but it's somewhat normal for the testing
phase of a .0 release.

One of the many new features in 9.0 we would like tested is the new
installer, so fresh installs on test systems are encouraged.

At this time FreeBSD-Update is not available, in part because of the
above issues (libs bump still coming, and encouraging testing of the
installer... :-).
