FreeBSD 4.8 release delayed until Mar 24

FreeBSD Release Engineering Team's Murray Stokley indicates in his email that the latest FreeBSD 4.8 release will need to be postponed until March 24 in order to include suggested fixes related to the XFree86 4.3.0 port. After a complete package rebuild, they plan to release FreeBSD 4.8 RC2 first. Murray requests everyone to continue testing the XFree86 4.3.0 port to ensure a quality release.

Thanks for everyone's help in ironing out the wrinkles in the XFree86
4.3.0. A complete new package build is being initiated with many of
the suggested fixes. When this build completes in approximately 30
hours (for i386, longer for alpha), we will release 4.8 RC2. In the
mean time, please continue doing just what you've been doing (testing
the heck out of XFree86 4.3 and associated ports). Thanks!
