Hello Everyone,

In light of the longer-than-expected window between 6.2-RELEASE and 6.2-RELEASE,
the End-of-Life date for FreeBSD 6.2 has been adjusted from January 31st, 2008
to May 31st, 2008.  As a result, FreeBSD 5.5, FreeBSD 6.1, and FreeBSD 6.2 will
all cease to be supported at the end of May 2008.

FreeBSD users should plan on upgrading to either FreeBSD 6.3 or FreeBSD 7.0 once
those have been released (hopefully by the end of December).  FreeBSD 6.3 will
be supported until the end of 2009, while FreeBSD 7.0 will be supported until
the end of 2008.

Colin Percival
FreeBSD Security Officer
