FreeBSD 8.0 RC2 available.

The second of the Release Candidates for the FreeBSD 8.0 release cycle is now available. At this point we feel most of what has been discovered during public testing that is feasible to fix as part of the release process has been addressed. So the current plan is to have 8.0-RC3 in about two weeks.

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

If you notice problems you can report them through the normal Gnats PR system or on the freebsd-current mailing list. I do cross-post announcements to freebsd-stable because this particular release is "about to become a stable branch" but when it comes to watching for issues related to the release most of the developers pay more attention to the freebsd-current list.

ISO images for all supported architectures are available on the FTP sites, and a "memory stick" image is available for amd64/i386 architectures. For amd64/i386 architectures the cdrom and memstick images include the documentation packages but no other packages. The DVD image includes the packages that will probably be available on the official release media but is subject to change between now and release. For sparc64 there is now a livefs cdrom, disc1 includes the documentation packages, and the DVD image has the set of packages that currently build for sparc64 (which is a sub-set of the set provided for amd64/i386).
