One day after the release of FreeBSD 9.2 RC4, the FreeBSD Project, through Glen Barber, was happy to announce that the first Alpha release of the upcoming FreeBSD 10.0 operating system was now available for download and testing.
"If you notice problems, you can report them through the normal GNATS PR system or here on the -current mailing list. If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing system, use the "head/" branch."
"Please be aware that cvsup and CVS are not supported methods of updating the src/ tree. Important note to freebsd-update(8) users: freebsd-update(8) is not a supported upgrade path for the 10.0-ALPHA builds." was stated on the official release announcement.
FreeBSD 10.0 Alpha 1 is distributed as installable-only ISO images, supporting the 32-bit, 64-bit, PowerPC, and SPARC64 architectures.
