The first release candidate to FreeBSD 9.3 is now available.

One week after FreeBSD 9.3 Beta 3, Glen Barber of the project has announced the first release candidate. Of course, at this stage it's mostly shipping bug-fixes and such, but FreeBSD 9.3 overall brings Radeon KMS, Xen HVM, and other changes -- many of which were back-ported from FreeBSD 10.0.

The FreeBSD 9.3 RC1 announcement along with links for the ISOs or upgrading any existing FreeBSD installation can be found via the FreeBSD mailing list. With still two more release candidates planned, the official release of FreeBSD 9.3 isn't expected to happen until around 16 July.
