FreeBSD 1.0 Announcement
FreeBSD 2.1.5 represents the culmination of over a year’s worth of work on the 2.1-STABLE branch of FreeBSD since it began with FreeBSD 2.0.5. In the 7 months since 2.1 was released, many bug fixes, updates and careful enhancements have been made, the results of which you now see here.
The STABLE branch was conceived out of the need to allow FreeBSD to grow and support long-term development projects (like devfs, NFSv3, IPX, PCCARD, etc.) while at the same time not jeopardizing the stability of its existing user base. FreeBSD 2.1.5 marks the finishing point for that effort and, barring any small "slipstream" releases done to solve significant problems, no further releases along the 2.1-STABLE branch are anticipated. The concept of "stable" and "experimental" tracks is not being abandoned, we’ll simply be doing this somewhat differently in the future.
For more information on the 2.1.5 release itself, please consult the Release Notes.
