In an unusual release sequence PC-BSD 8.1 is released prior to FreeBSD 8.1.

Anyone know if there are problems with FreeBSD platforms other than i386 and amd64?

FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE images are already present on mirrors since 2010/07/19, there is just no official announcement:
http://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ISO-IMAGES-amd64/8.1/

... or more generic:
http://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ISO-IMAGES-${ARCH}/8.1/

I was almost afraid to open up this thread, fearing pictures of some medical freak thing

Already know about 8.1 from Matt Olander but haven't followed FreeBSDs release schedule, I usually track stable and glance at current lol.

Actually, I was thinking it might be some news clipping about a fouled up data base entry or break in resulting in reversed birthdates.

O.K. I'm just weird. Back to code.
