Announcement
------------

The release engineering team is proud to announce the availability of
FreeBSD 6.0.

We encourage everyone to help with testing so any final bugs can be
identified and worked out. Availability of ISO images is given below.
If you have an older system you want to update using the normal
CVS/cvsup source based upgrade the branch tag to use is RELENG_6_0
Problem reports can be submitted using the send-pr(1) command. This
will likely be the last release candidate before the final release
of FreeBSD 6.0.

Known Issues
------------

The following issues are known and will be fixed before the release:

- A late change in the aac(4) driver may result in the driver failing
on some Dell systems.
- Some systems with only USB keyboards might loose keyboard input.
- Some laptops with certain IDE controllers may crash on bootup.
- The QEMU and VMWare packages are known to expose problems in the
IDE CDROM driver during OS install.
- System lock ups may occur under extreme filesystem activity or with
active filesystem snapshots.

Availability
------------

Install distribution sets and ISO images are available for from
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org as well as most FreeBSD mirror sites. A list
of the mirror sites is available here:

http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.IS...irrors-ftp.html

ISO images for sparc64 are not available yet but will be made available
soon. Also, the release engineering team will switch from using MD5
to SHA256 checksums in the future. Until the switch is fully made, we
will be providing both types of checksums.
