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.

   3 Upgrading from previous releases of FreeBSD

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 [url]http://www.FreeBSD.org/[/url] 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.

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?

It isn't final until Ken has sent the announcement.
