    Damnit, I only reinstalled a box with 8.0-RC3 last night!

    Will freebsd-update happily handle 8.0-RC3 -> 8.0-RELEASE?

    EDIT: Yes it handles it fine, although it replaced my ZFS-supporting /boot/loader and would have rendered my box unbootable if I hadn't noticed.

    Note the official scheduled date is 25/Nov/2009 (from the /usr/src/UPDATING). If you are using csup use tag RELENG_8 for stable 8.

    1 Introduction
    
       This document contains the release notes for FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE.
       It describes recently added, changed, or deleted features of
       FreeBSD. It also provides some notes on upgrading from previous
       versions of FreeBSD.
    
       This distribution of FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE is a release
       distribution. It can be found at http://www.FreeBSD.org/ or any of
       its mirrors. More information on obtaining this (or other) release
       distributions of FreeBSD can be found in the "Obtaining FreeBSD"
       appendix to the FreeBSD Handbook.
    
       All users are encouraged to consult the release errata before
       installing FreeBSD. The errata document is updated with
       "late-breaking" information discovered late in the release cycle
       or after the release. Typically, it contains information on known
       bugs, security advisories, and corrections to documentation. An
       up-to-date copy of the errata for FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE can be found
       on the FreeBSD Web site.
    
         --------------------------------------------------------------
    
    2 What's New
    
       This section describes the most user-visible new or changed
       features in FreeBSD since 7.2-RELEASE. In general, changes
       described here are unique to the 8.0-STABLE branch unless
       specifically marked as MERGED features.
    
       Typical release note items document recent security advisories
       issued after 7.2-RELEASE, new drivers or hardware support, new
       commands or options, major bug fixes, or contributed software
       upgrades. They may also list changes to major ports/packages or
       release engineering practices. Clearly the release notes cannot
       list every single change made to FreeBSD between releases; this
       document focuses primarily on security advisories, user-visible
       changes, and major architectural improvements.

    3 Upgrading from previous releases of FreeBSD
    
       [amd64, i386] Beginning with FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE, binary upgrades
       between RELEASE versions (and snapshots of the various security
       branches) are supported using the freebsd-update(8) utility. The
       binary upgrade procedure will update unmodified userland
       utilities, as well as unmodified GENERIC or SMP kernels
       distributed as a part of an official FreeBSD release. The
       freebsd-update(8) utility requires that the host being upgraded
       have Internet connectivity.
    
       An older form of binary upgrade is supported through the Upgrade
       option from the main sysinstall(8) menu on CDROM distribution
       media. This type of binary upgrade may be useful on non-i386,
       non-amd64 machines or on systems with no Internet connectivity.
    
       Source-based upgrades (those based on recompiling the FreeBSD base
       system from source code) from previous versions are supported,
       according to the instructions in /usr/src/UPDATING.
    
         Important: Upgrading FreeBSD should, of course, only be
         attempted after backing up all data and configuration files.
    
         --------------------------------------------------------------
    
     This file, and other release-related documents, can be downloaded from
                            http://www.FreeBSD.org/.
    
     For questions about FreeBSD, read the documentation before contacting
                            <questions@FreeBSD.org>.
    
       For questions about this documentation, e-mail <doc@FreeBSD.org>.
    
    
    


    Shame I have to wait for another Wd Raptor to arrive, I imagine Id hose something up, especially after just building a custom kernel on 7.2 a couple days ago.

    Will release notes be added later, or they will stay the way they are on CD/DVD? hmmm

    Does this means that DVD/CD's will be updated?
