If you mean that 10.0-RELEASE will come with a PKGNG-style package
repository, then yes.

9.2-RELEASE will most likely still use the old-style pkg_* format, so if
you want to use PKGNG with that you'll have to either build your own
repository from ports or use someone else's repository. For example, my
9.1-RELEASE/amd64 repository is publicly available and people have also
reported success with PC-BSD's repository.

Hope this helps,
