Yes.


is there a way for us to start using it before 8.0 hits -RELEASE


There are two ways.  The first is:
1) Checkout a copy of the HEAD src tree via your chosen source tracker
  (cvs/cvsup/ctm/...)
2) Follow the instructions in /usr/src/UPDATING to build and install
3) Test well on a non-production box in as close to your production
  environment as possible.  Be prepared to feed back problems and
  test fixes.
4) Once you are satisfied that it works for you, place it in production.

This is basically the same as any other FreeBSD release except that you
should test more rigourously.


That's for running HEAD. I would be careful doing this on a production
system if one does not know what one is really doing when doing this;)



Your second option is to take the patches from r185435 and apply them
to your 7.x source tree.  This may take some massaging (I'm not sure
how much 7 and 8 differ in the affected areas).  bz@ may be interested
in your experiences.  Then test and roll-out as above.


There is difference, though not much. Thus just taking the patch won't
work but the solution was posted like 2 weeks ago:
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-jail/2008-November/000615.html
Look for where it says RELENG_7.



lucky), I somehow was under impression (and i guess i was wrong) that
it will come out in 7.1,


It's far too late for any new features in 7.1 but the commit log says
it should be in 7.2.


Yupp that's the plan.
And the reason it will not be in 7.1-RELEASE is that noone provided
the needed bribing money. See
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-jail/2008-November/000619.html
(not serious here). It's been just too late.

Bjoern

The trick is to bribe the right people to get it RFP'd into 7.2R. :)

 The question is, does it change existing behavior, or just add new
 functionality?

The syntax semantics should be backward compatible, so likely the
latter.
