These include bar charts showing the time periods that various releases were being worked on (QA = Quality Assurance) and were supported by the FreeBSD security team. The dates for 6.4, 7.1, and beyond are all “best-guess”.

I find the graphs much easier to understand than the text-format descriptions in various emails.

Here are some unofficial graphs of the current proposed FreeBSD release and support schedule, based on current published data.

For purposes of this chart, I am using “qa” to mean “the time between when a CVS branch is frozen and a release is made”; I am using “support” to indicate support of a release by the Security Team.

The data are up at schedule.html.
