FreeBSD supported branches update

The branches supported by the FreeBSD Security Officer have been updated to reflect the EoL (end-of-life) of FreeBSD 7.0. The new list is below and at . Please note that FreeBSD 7.0 was originally announced with an EoL date of February 28, 2009, but the EoL was delayed by two months in order to allow a 3 month window for systems to be upgraded to FreeBSD 7.1.

Users of FreeBSD 7.0 are advised to upgrade promptly to FreeBSD 7.1, either by downloading an updated source tree and building updates manually, or (for i386 and amd64 systems) using the FreeBSD Update utility as described in the FreeBSD 7.1 release announcement. Some users may wish to wait for the upcoming FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE; however, they should be aware that FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE will only receive "normal" support (i.e., support for 12 months) and consequently it will not be supported for as long as FreeBSD 7.1.
