Default FreeBSD Quarterly Status Report January-March, 2012

Code:
Introduction

   This report covers FreeBSD-related projects between January and March
   2012. It is the first of the four reports planned for 2012. This
   quarter was highlighted by releasing the next major version of FreeBSD,
   9.0, which was finally released in the beginning of January 2012. The
   FreeBSD Project dedicates the FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE to the memory of
   Dennis M. Ritchie, one of the founding fathers of the UNIXŽ operating
   system. Our release engineering team has been also busy with
   preparation of the 8.3-RELEASE, which was publicly announced in April.

   Thanks to all the reporters for the excellent work! This report
   contains 27 entries and we hope you enjoy reading it.

   Please note that the deadline for submissions covering the period
   between April and June 2012 is July 15th, 2012.
