ooglek writes "I was downloading FreeBSD 8.1-RC2, scheduled for release sometime in July. It seems it was released while I was downloading it! FreeBSD-8.1-RC2-i386-dvd1.iso.gz is now gone, replaced with FreeBSD-8.1-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso.gz. The links about 8.1-RC2 no longer work. No official announcement seems to be available yet."
