I'm still updating it, just a bit behind due to 9.2 stuff. I just
updated packages for it a few days ago, along with ISOs. The new world /
kernel is also coming, probably later this weekend.

Users who install this image will then be able to online update to a FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE kernel / world when it is announced. Users already running an earlier 9.2 image can now online update to the latest world / kernel / packages via the system updating mechanisms. This *should* be the last RC before 9.2-RELEASE is tagged, so if you find any issues please let us know right away.
