It is now official: FreeBSD 9.0-RC2 is available for download.
The second of the Release Candidate builds for the 9.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available. Since this is the first release of a brand new branch I cross-post the announcements on both -current and -stable.
But just so you know most of the developers active in head and stable/9 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 can be tracked at wiki.freebsd.org/Releng/9.0TODO.
For update details, MD5 checsums and FTP locationts, check out the announcement: FreeBSD 9.0-RC2 Available.
