Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Per the FreeBSD 9.0 release process, the first beta snapshot
was expected to be out on the 20th of July. More than a week later,
the ISO images for the various architectures are now being found on
mirrors (e.g. here), but no official release announcement for
FreeBSD 9.0-BETA1 has yet been found.
The release process also had a second beta planned for the 3rd
of August, but that will surely be delayed due to the late
availability of beta 1. This process also had a third beta due in
mid August and then two release candidates in late August. The
FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE build was expected to be completed on the 7th
of September. Due to the late arrival of FreeBSD 9.0-BETA1, this
final release date may be pushed back but at least it still will
hopefully be on track for a christening in September.
