FreeBSD 8.0 RC3
Note di rilascio:

The third and hopefully last of the Release  Candidates for the FreeBSD 8.0 release cycle is now

Unless something catastrophic comes up within the next couple of days we will begin the final builds for 8.0-RELEASE.

There is one known issue with the igb(4) driver we are still deciding whether or not to fix as part of 8.0-RELEASE versus doing an Errata Notice for it some time after the release is out. It has been patched in head, and the SVN commit for it is r199192.

If any of you are able to give that patch a try ona machine with the igb(4) NIC it would be appreciated.

If you notice problems you can report them through the normal Gnats PR system or on the freebsd-current mailing list.

I do cross-post announcements to freebsd-stable because this particular release is "about to become a stable branch"  but when it comes to watching for issues related to the release most of the developers pay more attention to the freebsd-current list.

ISO images for all supported architectures are available on the FTP sites, and a "memory stick" image is available for amd64/i386 architectures.

For amd64/i386 architectures the cdrom and memstick images include the documentation packages but no other packages. The DVD image includes the packages that will probably be available on the official release media but is subject to change between now and release.

For sparc64 there is now a livefs cdrom, disc1 includes the documentation packages, and the DVD image has the set of packages that currently build for sparc64 (which is a sub-set of the set provided for amd64/i386).

If you are using csup/cvsup methods to update an older system the branch tag to use is RELENG_8_0.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64 systems running earlier FreeBSD releases.

Systems running 7.0-RELEASE, 7.1-RELEASE, 7.2-RELEASE, 8.0-BETA1, 8.0-BETA2, 8.0-BETA3, 8.0-BETA4, 8.0-RC1 or 8.0-RC2.
