FreeBSD 8.1-BETA1 Available...
The first of the test builds for the FreeBSD 8.1 release cycle is now
available for amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, pc98, and sparc64
architectures. Files suitable for creating installation media or
doing FTP based installs through the network should be on most of
the FreeBSD mirror sites by now. MD5/SHA256 checksums of the images
are at the bottom of this message.
The ISOs for this build do not include packages other than the docs.
For amd64 and i386 "memstick" images are also available that can be
copied to a USB "memory stick" (also called "thumb drive") and used
for installs on machines that support booting from that type of media.
The target schedule for the release is available here:
and the wiki page tracking the current status is here:
If you find problems you can report them through the normal Gnats
based PR system or here on this mailing list.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
