The first BETA 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 -current mailing list.

If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing
system, use the "stable/10" branch.

Important note to freebsd-update(8) users:  Due to a last minute problem
found in the 10.0-BETA1 freebsd-update(8) builds, freebsd-update(8) is
NOT supported for 10.0-BETA1 upgrades.  Please do not use
freebsd-update(8) to upgrade to 10.0-BETA1.

Please be aware that cvsup and CVS are not supported methods of updating
the src/ tree.

Also note, due to the size of the images, the ports.txz distribution is
not included in 10.0-BETA1, however is expected to be included with
disc1.iso for subsequent builds during the release cycle.

The ports tree can be fetched either with the portsnap(8) utility, or
using svnlite using any of the mirrors listed here:

Changes between -ALPHA5 and -BETA1 include:

    o Introduce freebsd-version(1), which is intended to be used as an
      auditing tool, to determine the userland patch level when it
      differs from what 'uname -r' reports.

    o Improve ZFS lzjb decompress performance.
    o Add two new MIPS CPU families - mips24k and mips74k.

    o The "jail_<jname>_*" rc.conf(5) variables for per-jail
      configuration are automatically converted to
      /var/run/jail.<jname>.conf before the jail(8) utility is invoked,
      so the new jail.conf(5) syntax is used.

    o Remove most of the ATF tools and the _atf user.

    o Updates to random(4).  Please note the following:
	- In 10.0-BETA1, it is not possible for random(4) to be loaded
	  as a kernel module via kldload(8).  If not using GENERIC, and
	  the system kernel configuration excludes 'device random',
	  please include random(4) in the kernel configuration file.
	  The fix for this issue is pending review, and is expected to
	  be fixed in 10.0-BETA2.

    o Updates to bsdinstall(8).  Please note the following:
	- 10.0-BETA1 introduces a number of updates to bsdinstall(8),
	  notably the ability to install to a full ZFS filesystem.
	  Please keep in mind that this is an experimental feature.
	- If using the ZFS installation option in *and* have enabled
	  full-disk encryption is enabled, a few entries will need to be
	  manually added to loader.conf(5) before the 'bootpool' zpool
	  will be available after the system boots.  This manual step
	  is expected to be fixed in 10.0-BETA2.

	  The entries that need to be added are:


	  This can be done at the final menu of bsdinstall(8), when
	  prompted to boot into the newly-installed system;
	  alternatively, this can be done post-install, in which case,
	  the following must be run before appending loader.conf(5):

	    # zpool import -f bootpool

Pre-installed virtual machine images for 10.0-BETA1 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 and VMDK format.  The image
download size is approximately 136 MB, which decompress to a 20GB sparse

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)
