FreeBSD 8.0-RC1 Available

The first of the Release Candidates for the FreeBSD 8.0 release cycle is now available. How many RC's we have will depend on how well 8.0-RC1 does. At the moment only one more RC is on the schedule but odds are fairly high we will wind up inserting at least one more RC. Between BETA4 and RC1 a lot of work has gone into IPv6 issues as well as many other issues that have been brought up from the public testing. And a patch set was committed by the people who handle porting ZFS to FreeBSD that they felt makes ZFS production-ready.

Details about the current target schedule along with much more detail about the current status of the release is available here:

There are two known problems with 8.0-RC1. One known issue with the 8.0-RC1 build was discovered after the builds got started so is not part of the ISO images or FreeBSD-Update builds. The issue is that local IPv6 link-local addresses are not reachable. A fix for it has been committed to RELENG_8 so if you install from the 8.0-RC1 media or update using FreeBSD-Update you will then need to update using csup/cvsup mechanisms if you need that fix for your environment. It should only
impact people using IPv6.

The other known issue is that the flowtable may direct packets to the wrong interface under certain routing conditions. We feel confident that this bug will be fixed so the flowtable is enabled in RC1 to maximize testing. If you experience routing problems, please temporarily disable the flowtable using the sysctl =0 and report the results to the freebsd-current@ mailing list. If we are unable to resolve this issue by RC2, we will disable the flowtable in 8.0-RELEASE.
