The third release candidate of the 9.1-RELEASE release cycle is now
available on the FTP servers for amd64, i386, powerpc64, and sparc64.
The MD5/SHA256 checksums are at the bottom of this message.  The ISO
images and, for architectures that support it, the memory stick images
are available here:

(or any of the FreeBSD mirror sites).

This is expected to be the last Release Candidate.  Unless a major
show-stopper is discovered within the next few days the final Release
Builds will be started.  If you notice any problems you can report them
through the normal Gnats PR system or here on the -stable mailing list.

If you want to do a source-based update to an existing system using SVN
the branch to use is releng/9.1.  If you would like to use CVS instead
use RELENG_9_1.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64 
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases.  Systems running 9.0-RELEASE,
9.1-BETA1, 9.1-RC1, or 9.1-RC2 can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 9.1-RC3

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 

# 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 7.X, 8.X) can also use
freebsd-update to upgrade to FreeBSD 9.1-RC3, 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 7.X
or FreeBSD 8.X and FreeBSD 9.X.
