For those looking forward to the release of FreeBSD 9.2 that's expected to happen later in the month, the second release candidate is now available.

With the final release in sight, FreeBSD 9.2-RC2 is about addressing regressions that were found during 9.2 testing. Among the changes since the first release candidate were a boot issue with some GPT partitioning tools, some panic issues, a regression with some PCI disk controllers disappearing during boot, and an assortment of other issues.

The FreeBSD 9.2-RC2 release information can be found in full via the release announcement. For those looking to dabble with FreeBSD 9.2 but not jump in too deeply, I would recommend checking out PC-BSD 9.2 when available as a great, easy-to-use, desktop-oriented BSD platform derived from FreeBSD.
