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.
