Marking the twenty-first birthday of FreeBSD was the release of FreeBSD 10.1-RC4 and separately was the FreeBSD-derived PC-BSD 10.1 RC2 release.

FreeBSD 10.1-RC4 is expected to be the final RC build of FreeBSD 10.1 and brought fixes for ATA CF ERASE breakage and a race fix that could cause an EPT misconfiguration VM-exit.

More details on FreeBSD 10.1-RC4 can be found via its Sunday release announcement. The official release of FreeBSD 10.1 is now hopefully a few days out with its many new features and changes.

Meanwhile, PC-BSD 10.1 RC2 was released today as its latest code based off FreeBSD 10.1. This release has various bug-fixes in the latest release candidate and there's now UEFI support for boot and installation. The PC-BSD crew has also updated their TrueOS spin that's a CD-sized server edition of the operating system. All the PC-BSD 10.1 RC2 details can be found at PCBSD.org.
