Default FreeBSD 7 EOL and UEFI

Two interesting tidbits:
FreeBSD 7 EOL
Quote:
The FreeBSD Ports Management Team wishes to remind users that February 28 was the end of support for the Ports Collection for both FreeBSD 7.4 RELEASE and the FreeBSD 7.x STABLE branch. Neither the infrastructure nor individual ports are guaranteed to work on these FreeBSD versions after that date. A tag has be created for users who cannot upgrade for some
reason, at which time these users are advised to stop tracking the latest
ports repository and use the RELEASE_7_EOL tag instead
Secure Boot Grant

The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce that Benno Rice has been awarded a grant to implement the ability to boot FreeBSD in the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) boot environment.
