The third release candidate to FreeBSD 11.0 is now available with this release cycle running now a few weeks behind schedule.

FreeBSD 11 had been ticking nicely along its planned release schedule until August rolled around. Bugs have held up the final FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE, which was originally scheduled to happen in early September. FreeBSD 11.0-RC3 made it out this weekend as hopefully the last test release while under the revised schedule the developers hope to be able to announce FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE on 28 September. The revised 11.0 schedule can be found on

FreeBSD 11.0-RC3 fixes some boot issues, debugging options are now turned off for ARM64/AArch64, the libarchive library was updated, cron has received a bug fix, and there are a few other changes.

Download links and more details on FreeBSD 11.0-RC3 are available via the mailing list announcement.
