Ken Smith mengumumkan ketersediaan rilis beta pertama FreeBSD 9.0:
The first beta build of the 9.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available. Due to lack of support for boot floppies and issues with the new ATA_CAM infrastructure the pc98 architecture is being dropped to Tier-2 status. Note that some time between now and beta 2 we will finalize the list of shared libraries that need to have their versions bumped (only a subset of libraries have been converted to symbol-versioning) and take care of doing the bumps. So at the moment packages built for current should work. But when the bump happens you will need to recompile any applications you have installed and there will likely be a delay for suitable pre-built packages to become available on the FTP sites.
