The second release candidate of the 9.1-RELEASE release cycle is now
available on the FTP servers for amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, and
powerpc64.  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).

A third RC build has been decided on, currently scheduled for a week
from now.  The release builds themselves will begin about a week after
RC3.  The current target schedule has been updated:

If you notice any problems you can report them through the normal Gnats
PR system or here on the -stable mailing list.

There was enough "community push-back" from the decision to not export
the 9.1 release branch activity to CVS that the decision has been
reversed.  A firm decision has been made that 10.X release activity will
not be exported to CVS.  It hasn't been decided yet if the upcoming 8.X
and/or 9.X (past 9.1) release activity will be exported.  More
information about that will get posted as decisions get made.

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, or 9.1-RC1 can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 9.1-RC2

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-RC2, 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.
