FreeBSD 6.1-BETA1 and 5.5-BETA1 is available now

The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the beginning of both the FreeBSD 6.1 and FreeBSD 5.5 release cycles with the availability of FreeBSD 6.1-BETA1 and FreeBSD 5.5-BETA1. Both FreeBSD 6.1 and FreeBSD 5.5 are meant to be a refinement of their respective branches with few dramatic changes. A lot of bugfixes have been made, some drivers have been updated, and some areas have been tweaked for better performance, etc. but no large changes have been made to the basic architecture.

FreeBSD is a UN*X-like operating system for the i386, IA-64, PC-98, Alpha/AXP, and UltraSPARC platforms based on U.C. Berkeley's "4.4BSD-Lite" release, with some "4.4BSD-Lite2" enhancements. It is also based indirectly on William Jolitz's port of U.C. Berkeley's "Net/2" to the i386, known as "386BSD", though very little of the 386BSD code remains. FreeBSD is used by companies, Internet Service Providers, researchers, computer professionals, students and home users all over the world in their work, education and recreation.

About FreeBSD

FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium® and Athlon?), amd64 compatible (including Opteron?, Athlon 64, and EM64T), Alpha/AXP, IA-64, PC-98 and UltraSPARC® architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX® developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.

The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the beginning of both the FreeBSD 6.1 and FreeBSD 5.5 release cycles with 
the availability of FreeBSD 6.1-BETA1 and FreeBSD 5.5-BETA1.

Both FreeBSD 6.1 and FreeBSD 5.5 are meant to be a refinement of their respective branches with few dramatic changes. A lot of bugfixes have
been made, some drivers have been updated, and some areas have been tweaked for better performance, etc. but no large changes have been made
to the basic architecture. The FreeBSD 5.5 Release is being done for people who are unable to make the jump to FreeBSD 6.X at this time. We
do encourage people to make that transition as soon as possible, though. There have been some updates made between FreeBSD 5.4 and FreeBSD 5.5 but not all of the bugfixes done to RELENG_6 have been backported to RELENG_5. This will almost certainly be the last 5.X release.

Download

The official sources for FreeBSD are available via anonymous FTP from a worldwide set of mirror sites. The site ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ is well connected and allows a large number of connections to it, but you are probably better off finding a ?closer? mirror site (especially if you decide to set up some sort of mirror site).

The FreeBSD mirror sites database is more accurate than the mirror listing in the Handbook, as it gets its information from the DNS rather than relying on static lists of hosts.
