FreeBSD 9.0 Reached End-Of-Life on March 31, 2013
Users are urged to upgrade to FreeBSD 9.1 or other supported release!
Even though it was known by most of FreeBSD users that the 9.0 release of the best BSD operating system will reach EOL (End-Of-Life) on March 31, 2013, we feel obliged to announce users that FreeBSD 9.0 is no longer supported.Originally released on January 10, 2012, FreeBSD 9.0 was a short-term supported release (one year), as opposed to the FreeBSD 8.3 release, which is still supported until April 30, 2014.
Since November 2012, FreeBSD 9.0 users received a warning message when they tried to update their system, saying "WARNING: FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE-p3 is approaching its End-of-Life date. It is strongly recommended that you upgrade to a newer release within the next 2 months."
Those of you who want to upgrade to a newer release, can download FreeBSD 9.1 right now from Softpedia, which is supported with security updates until December 31, 2014.
