With FreeBSD 9.2 being anticipated for release soon, the GhostBSD distro is out with their 3.5 release candidate that's based upon the upstream FreeBSD.

GhostBSD 3.5 is based on FreeBSD 9.2 and will support the LXDE, MATE, Openbox, and Xfce desktops as an alternative to the KDE-focused FreeBSD-based PC-BSD. Like PC-BSD, GhostBSD focuses upon a nice BSD-based desktop experience for end-users. Aside from pulling upstream FreeBSD 9.2 changes, the 3.5 RC1 release brings a new GDM log-in theme and various fixes to its packaged desktop environments.

More details on GhostBSD 3.5 RC1 can be found via its release announcement. Meanwhile for those that want a more bleeding-edge FreeBSD, there is already out FreeBSD 10 Alpha.
