FreeBSD 7.3 Beta1
Note di rilascio:

7.3-BETA1, the first test build of the 7.3-RELEASE cycle, is now
available for amd64, i386, pc98, and sparc64 architectures. The target schedule along with the current status of the release is available here:

For now we plan on BETA1 being followed by two Release Candidates, then the release itself. If you notice problems you can report them through the normal Gnats PR system or on the freebsd-stable mailing list.

ISO images for the architectures listed above are available on the FTP mirror sites. For this BETA build no packages were included on any of the ISO images. An initial pass at providing packages will be done for the first Release Candidate.

If you are using csup/cvsup methods to update an older system the branch tag to use is RELENG_7.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64 systems running earlier FreeBSD releases. Systems running 7.1-RELEASE or 7.2-RELEASE can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.3-BETA1

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 continuing.

# 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 6.x) can also use
freebsd-update to upgrade to FreeBSD 7.3-BETA1, 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 6.x and FreeBSD 7.x.
