You can look for yourself :

It's almost entirely bug fixes, but there are a couple of new driver fixes in there that seem to me to be unreasonable to include in an RC. I agree : where the heck is the change freeze?

I'd say 'oh wait, it's Linux' with some justification, but I'm currently being driven mad with lacklustre/hanging web browser performance in FreeBSD (Core 2 Duo 2GHz laptop). I'd much rather run OpenBSD, but the only options for general purpose emulation under it are Qemu and Bochs, Virtualbox is a much better option for running Windows 7 in a VM. Wine is rather sucky under FreeBSD running on a GM965 graphics adapter, and doesn't run at all under OpenBSD..
