Bueno, acabo de bajar el dvd de FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE, y ya en mi correo tengo un mail de Ken Smith [] indicando el anuncio, entre las nodevades mas resaltantes son:

- The ULE scheduler is now the default in GENERIC kernels for
amd64 and i386 architectures. The ULE scheduler significantly
improves performance on multicore systems for many workloads.
- Support for using DTrace inside the kernel has been imported
from OpenSolaris. DTrace is a comprehensive dynamic tracing
- A new and much-improved NFS Lock Manager (NLM) client.
- Boot loader changes allow, among other things, booting from
USB devices and booting from GPT-labeled devices.
- The cpuset(2) system call and cpuset(1) command have been added,
providing an API for thread to CPU binding and CPU resource
grouping and assignment.
- KDE updated to 3.5.10, GNOME updated to 2.22.3.
- DVD-sized media for the amd64 and i386 architectures

Tambien estan procedimientos de como haer el update (Copio del correo original):
The procedure for doing a source code based update is described in the FreeBSD Handbook:

The branch tag to use for updating the source is RELENG_7_1.

FreeBSD Update

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64 systems running earlier FreeBSD releases. Systems running 7.0-RELEASE, 7.1-BETA, 7.1-BETA2, 7.1-RC1, or 7.1-RC2 can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.1-RELEASE

During this process, FreeBSD Update may ask the user to help by merging some configuration files or by confirming that the automatically performed merging was done correctly.

# freebsd-update install

The system must be rebooted with the newly installed kernel before continuing.
# shutdown -r now

After rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to install the new userland components, and the system needs to be rebooted again:

# freebsd-update install
# shutdown -r now

Users of Intel network interfaces which are changing their name from "em" to "igb" should make necessary changes to configuration files BEFORE running freebsd-update, since otherwise the network interface will not be configured appropriately after rebooting for the first time.

Users of earlier FreeBSD releases (FreeBSD 6.x) can also use freebsd-update to upgrade to FreeBSD 7.1, but will be prompted to rebuild all third-party applications (e.g., anything installed from the ports tree) after the second invocation of "freebsd-update install", in order to handle differences in the system libraries between FreeBSD 6.x and FreeBSD 7.x.
