The FreeBSD Foundation, the maker of the FreeBSD open source operating system, proudly announced on the last day of 2012 that the FreeBSD 9.1 release is now officially available. Actually, the FreeBSD 9.1 operating system was available for download (without any official release) on the FTP servers of the FreeBSD Foundation since last week.
The stable legacy branch of the popular BSD-based operating system FreeBSD has been updated to FreeBSD 7.3. The release is a housekeeping update that brings some newer packages and some security fixes, but no new features. FreeBSD 7.3 is now available for the amd64, i386, pc98, and sparc64 architectures.
