Subject: FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE is now available

I am happy to announce the availability of FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE, the latest release of the FreeBSD -STABLE development branch. Since FreeBSD 4.6-RELEASE in June 2002, we have updated a number of software programs in the base system, such as GCC and sendmail. Several new drivers have been added for USB devices and disk controllers. We have also incorporated updates for XFree86 and our Linux emulation libraries.

FreeBSD 4.7 also incorporates all of the security and bug fixes from 4.6.2 (released in August 2002), including several ATA-related bugfixes, updates for OpenSSL and OpenSSH, and fixes to address several security advisories.
More info over at http://www.freebsd.org

Typical isn't it :)
