Installing/Upgrading

Upgrading to -STABLE

After a FreeBSD -RELEASE has been released, development continues to the next version. Development is done in a number of branches, like -STABLE and -CURRENT. In this article I'll explain how to track the -STABLE branch.-STABLE is the branch which will bring the next stable release. -CURRENT is the unstable development branch. -CURRENT is only meant for developers! Note: -STABLE is a BRANCH. That means it is being developed constantly. This also means -STABLE could be broken at any moment. Do not worry though, I've never noticed any problem with it.
