I have previously kept my machine updated by fetching the STABLE branch using csup and rebuilding the kernel. (As described in Handbook chapter 24.7)

From now on, I want to use freebsd-update to simplify the process and follow the RELEASE branch (+patches) instead.

But it seems that freebsd-update cannot help me upgrade from 7.1-STABLE to 7.2-RELEASE.

Any tips on how to make the transition to RELEASE?
