The release of FreeBSD 9.2 is running a few days behind schedule, but released on Monday was 9.2-RC3, which is expected to be the final release candidate for this next FreeBSD update before being officially tagged.

FreeBSD 9.2 isn't as exciting as the FreeBSD 10.0 release expected in 2014, but it does provide various bug-fixes and updates to the popular BSD distribution. The operating system update has been in beta since last month and is now up to its third and final release candidate.

The release schedule was going on time but now it appears to be off by about one week per the FreeBSD.org schedule, but that's still fairly good given expected OS delays and some setbacks with FreeBSD releases in the past.

FreeBSD 9.2-RC3 just has a couple of fixes involving an integer overflow fix, reverting some sendfile changes, and defaulting net.inet.tcp.experimental.initcwnd10 to off. More details on FreeBSD 9.2-RC3 can be found via its mailing list announcement.

Expect FreeBSD 9.2 to be officially released in early September along with updates to its derivatives like PC-BSD.
