Hello Everyone,

On February 28th, FreeBSD 7.1 will reach its End of Life and will no longer be
supported by the FreeBSD Security Team. (This was initially scheduled to occur
today, but in light of the imminent arrival of FreeBSD 7.4 I decided to push
it back a month.) Users of FreeBSD 7.1 are strongly encouraged to upgrade to
either FreeBSD 7.3, FreeBSD 8.1, or the upcoming FreeBSD 7.4 or 8.2 within the
next month.

The current supported branches and expected EoL dates are:

+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
