Thu Dec 26 16:25:31 UTC 2013

The third RC build of the 10.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available
on the FTP servers for the amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64 and
sparc64 architectures.

The image checksums follow at the end of this email.

ISO images and, for architectures that support it, the memory stick images
are available here (or any of the FreeBSD mirror sites):

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

If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing
system, use the "releng/10.0" branch.

Important note to freebsd-update(8) users:  Please be sure to follow the
instructions in the following FreeBSD Errata Notices before upgrading
the system to 10.0-RC3:

  - EN-13:04.freebsd-update:

  - EN-13:05.freebsd-update:

Pre-installed virtual machine images for 10.0-RC3 are also available
for amd64 and i386 architectures.

The images are located under the 'snapshots' directory on FTP, here:

The disk images are available in both QCOW2, VHD, and VMDK format.  The
image download size is approximately 135 MB, which decompress to a 20GB
sparse image.

The partition layout is:

    - 512k - freebsd-boot GPT partition type (bootfs GPT label)
    - 1GB  - freebsd-swap GPT partition type (swapfs GPT label)
    - ~17GB - freebsd-ufs GPT partition type (rootfs GPT label)

Changes between -RC2 and -RC3 include:

 - Several minor bugfixes and functionality enhancements to bhyve.
 - Add new sysctl, kern.supported_archs, containing the list of
   FreeBSD MACHINE_ARCH values whose binaries this kernel can run.
 - Add a pkg(8) repository configuration file for cdrom-based package
 - Implement a fix to allow bsdconfig(8) to be able to install
   packages included on the DVD.
 - Fix pkg(8) multi-repository support by properly respecting 'enabled'
 - Fix Xen build without INET.
 - Several bugfixes to bsdinstall(8).
 - Fix a ZFS-related panic triggered by an incorrect assertion.
 - Fix mountroot> prompt eating most of the characters by not enabling
   RXRDY interrupts in the attach routine.
 - Fix a regression in ng_ksocket(4).
 - Apply patch from upstream Heimdal for encoding fix

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of amd64 and i386
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases.  Systems running earlier
FreeBSD releases can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 10.0-RC3

During this process, freebsd-update(8) 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:

# freebsd-update install

It is recommended to rebuild and install all applications if possible,
especially if upgrading from an earlier FreeBSD release, for example,
FreeBSD 9.x.  Alternatively, the user can install misc/compat9x and
other compatibility libraries, afterwards the system must be rebooted
into the new userland:

# shutdown -r now

Finally, after rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to remove
stale files:

# freebsd-update install
