The first BETA build of the 9.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available. Since this will be the first release on a brand new branch I’ll cross-post the announcements on both -current and -stable. But just so you know most of the developers active in head pay more attention to the -current mailing list. If you notice problems you can report them through the normal Gnats PR system or on the -current mailing list.
The 9.0-RELEASE cycle will be tracked here: http://wiki.freebsd.org/Releng/9.0TODO
