“FreeBSD 7.4-RC2

“FreeBSD 7.4, scheduled for final release on January 24, just
saw its second release candidate on January 23 about two weeks
behind schedule. The RC2 announcement acknowledges the delay and
confirms that final will also be delayed. In addition, a third
release candidate is expected around January 30. Issues with KDE
and GNOME meta-packages and other bugs were cited as the reason for
delays. Development of version 8.2 is running about a week behind
schedule as well.

popular software includes Pidgin 2.7.7, GIMP 2.6.11, MySQL 5.1.54,
Firefox 3.6.13, GCC 4.3.4, Xfce 4.6.2, and Xorg X Server 1.7.5.
