If you have been wanting to try out the FreeBSD 10-CURRENT operating system that's presently under development, there's now an easier way.
Rather than needing to install a current FreeBSD release and then upgrade to the "-CURRENT" packages from there, a FreeBSD developer has finally started offering snapshot images of the FreeBSD 10-CURRENT and 9-STABLE versions. Yes, finally ISO snapshots to make it easier to try out the current development state from a clean install.
The FreeBSD 9-STABLE and FreeBSD 10-CURRENT ISO snapshots are currently offered in i386 and AMD64 flavors. The latest snapshots can be found here
. The announcement was made to one of the project's mailing lists
FreeBSD 10 is set to have many new features
with one of the major changes being using LLVM/Clang as the default compiler to deprecate GCC
. In the FreeBSD 9 world, FreeBSD 9.1 is imminent
while no formal release schedule has yet to come for FreeBSD 10.0.
