The developers of FreeBSD have made available the FIRST release candidate of version 11.2. Notable changes since the last BETA3 are Wake On LAN features for Ice Cake / Cannon Lake, amd64 memstick installers updated to use MBR, flush cache fix on Intel CPUs, disc1.iso to fit on 700mb CD-ROM with reduction of Live-CD size, and several update/bug fixes. You may download the image/ISO here or at the link below.
Installer images and memory stick images are available here: https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/releases/ISO-IMAGES/11.2/ The image checksums follow at the end of this e-mail. If you notice problems you can report them through the Bugzilla PR system or on the -stable mailing list. If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing system, use the "stable/11" branch. A summary of changes since 11.2-BETA3 includes: o A fix to flush caches are before initiating a microcode update on Intel CPUs. o Wake On LAN features for Ice Lake and Cannon Lake devices has been activated. o The amd64 memstick installers have been updated to use MBR instead of GPT for better compatibility with hardware that can handle both, but do not boot in BIOS-mode (legacy mode) with a GPT partitioning scheme. Note, this does not affect the installed system, only the install media itself. o The disc1.iso has been stripped down to reduce the "Live CD" userland, allowing the media to fit onto a 700MB CD-ROM. o libxo(3) has been updated to upstream version 0.9.0. o Miscellaneous bug fixes. A list of changes since 11.1-RELEASE is available in the stable/11 release notes: https://www.freebsd.org/releases/11.2R/relnotes.html Please note, the release notes page is not yet complete, and will be updated on an ongoing basis as the 11.2-RELEASE cycle progresses.
