Maybe should have called it FreeBSD 14 - just saying... 13's unlucky, right :)

FreeBSD Parts Purpose want luck go to linux
More BETA testers, not wait for RC like I did on the subject!

Wash your hands thoroughly (and the keyboard & wipe the screen, too), you typed the L*x word!

I personally wonder if it might be worth holding off until the ports transition to git is finished. I think it's pretty close.

Oh, I'm fine with it as well, it's just very uncommon ;)
Actually, no, it’s not that uncommon. It already happened several times in the past that a release got delayed, and/or that additional RCs were produced, or even additional BETAs. In the past century there were even GAMMA builds sometimes.

Depends on your cultural background and personal attitude. For some people, 13 is a lucky number. And in many East Asian cultures, it’s the number 4 that is considered unlucky, while the number 13 has no special connotation.

Personally I don’t believe in lucky or unlucky numbers. It’s just superstition.
Don’t let numbers control your life.

I have noticed in computing industry that products with prime version or product numbers are luckier than other. 13 is a prime number 😎

From the release schedules I can find on the website, it does look somewhat uncommon, but admittedly, that's only as far back as 10.0 (which is the only other one with an -RC5) in 2014 :)

I'm already running it for a few days, but built from source… after all, the release tag is there, and GPG-signed:

BUT: The release process is only finished once the official announcement mail is out. So I wouldn't recommend picking up any installer images that might pop up earlier, they still could be "wrong". Actually, even an urgent last-minute change to the source might still be possible, although unlikely ;)
