A new system image based on FreeBSD 9.0-RC1 is available and it tagged as 9.0-003.

This version has a more modern but still experimental version of FreeBSD. It will be superseded by the upcoming FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE (final), probably as 9.0-004.

Just like the previous 9.0-002 version based on RC1, this version contains the following changes:
  • Fixes a security vulnerability related to web-interface authentication (more information)
  • Changes to the ZFSguru console menu, with improved shell feedback.
  • Now enables colored directory output by default (i.e. ls -l /)

One additional change is that this version contains a change in /etc/rc.conf where all network interfaces are assigned DHCP configuration, instead of a long list of interface-specific configuration. This only affects some rare network adapters and when you use multiple network adapters of the same type.

Unlike 9.0-002, this 9.0-003 system image has one service addon available: iSCSI-target. Perhaps Virtualbox will follow soon, but perhaps this extension will have to wait for when FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE (final) is available. So no promises here!

To upgrade to this system image, use the experimental LiveCD on the download page, or upgrade your running system via System->Install procedure.
