Not quite. To quote the handbook: RELENG_4_8 The release branch for FreeBSD-4.8, used only for security advisories and other seriously critical fixes. and RELENG_4_8_0_RELEASE FreeBSD 4.8 [i.e., the latter is the actual release, and the former is the "release branch," which continues to get updated -- but only for essential changes -- after the actual release.] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
