FreeBSD 7.2 Upgrade
On Wednesday, 10/14/2009, we will be updating all pairlite servers from
FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p1 to FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE.
An operating system upgrade is a major
step, taken only after careful testing, building, and rebuilding of features
in the new operating system environment.
As with previous upgrades, we feel that this upgrade will bring improved
stability, security, and system performance. Nearly all of the supporting
software packages on our servers will receive major or minor updates, as well.
Summary of New Features
These notes are intended to help guide you through any changes that might be
required by the upgrades to system software. If you are not sure about
what to do or have any other questions, please contact us at
email@example.com and we will be glad to
Notes and caveats will be posted here as they become available. Please
check back later for more information.
