Está para breve a nova versão do FreeBSD, que será a (r)evolução do anterior FreeBSD 7 (mais info).
Ken Smith has announced the availability of the second beta release of FreeBSD 8.0: "BETA2 is still a little bit 'rough around the edges' and we still have various debugging tools enabled that cause the system to perform worse than it will when those debugging tools get disabled. We don't know of any issues that will 'eat your data' or anything like that so in that regard it's safe but we don't recommend it for production use quite yet. If you notice problems you can report them through the normal Gnats PR system or on the freebsd-current mailing list. ISO images for all supported architectures are available on the FTP sites, and a memory stick image is available for amd64 and i386 architectures." Follow the complete release announcement for further details. Download: 8.0-BETA2-i386-dvd1.iso (822MB, MD5), 8.0-BETA2-amd64-dvd1.iso (930MB, MD5).
