Comment (by dexter):

 This appears to be a combined release engineering and web site problem:

 The PC-BSD web site offers 10.0-RELEASE with a download link that provides
 PCBSD10.0-RELEASE-x64-DVD-USB-latest.iso which is in fact 10.0.1 and does
 not suggest a 10.0.1 milestone.

 Furthermore, the "RELEASE" directory at
 http://iso.cdn.pcbsd.org/10.0-RELEASE/amd64/ also does not offer the
 10.0.1 milestone but the files do:

 PCBSD10.0.1-RELEASE-03-13-2014-x64-DVD-USB.iso

 This simultaneously suggests a 10.0.1 milestone and a 03-13-2014
 post-10.0.1 milestone snapshot.

 Either way... this is confusing when the user goes to update their
 10.0-RELEASE with a 10.0.1-RELASE named 10.0-RELEASE.

 itaylor57 on #pcbsd suggests that it has "always been this way" and I will
 argue that the confusion has always been there.

 Rational: PC-BSD is FANTASTIC for demonstrating bhyve features at the
 command line and a graphical presentation. As a new feature though,
 versioning is critical to bhyve. This should apply to other FreeBSD
 components. Any potential confusion is just that.
