FreeBSD 7.3-BETA1 Available…

7.3-BETA1, the first test build of the 7.3-RELEASE cycle, is now
available for amd64, i386, pc98, and sparc64 architectures. The target
schedule along with the current status of the release is available here:

http://wiki.freebsd.org/Releng/7.3TODO

For now we plan on BETA1 being followed by two Release Candidates, then
the release itself. If you notice problems you can report them through
the normal Gnats PR system or on the freebsd-stable mailing list.

ISO images for the architectures listed above are available on the FTP
mirror sites. For this BETA build no packages were included on any of
the ISO images. An initial pass at providing packages will be done for
the first Release Candidate.

If you are using csup/cvsup methods to update an older system the branch
tag to use is RELENG_7.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases. Systems running 7.1-RELEASE
or 7.2-RELEASE can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.3-BETA1

During this process, FreeBSD Update may ask the user to help by merging
some configuration files or by confirming that the automatically
performed merging was done correctly.

# freebsd-update install

The system must be rebooted with the newly installed kernel before
continuing.

# shutdown -r now

After rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to install the new
userland components, and the system needs to be rebooted again:

# freebsd-update install
# shutdown -r now

Users of earlier FreeBSD releases (FreeBSD 6.x) can also use
freebsd-update to upgrade to FreeBSD 7.3-BETA1, but will be prompted to
rebuild all third-party applications (e.g., anything installed from the
ports tree) after the second invocation of “freebsd-update install”, in
order to handle differences in the system libraries between FreeBSD 6.x
and FreeBSD 7.x.
