Description Graham Perrin 2021-01-24 15:39:30 UTC
The current edition of the page has 12.0R under FreeBSD-CURRENT … and so on. https://www.freebsd.org/releases/ shows that 12.0 was released (no longer -CURRENT) in 2018.

Found: <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.2R/readme/> <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.2R/relnotes/> <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.2R/hardware/> <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.2R/errata/> <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/13.0R/readme/> <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/13.0R/relnotes/> <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/13.0R/hardware/> <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/13.0R/errata/> CURRENT ======= <https://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/#_freebsd_current_release_documentation> I assume that nothing will be suitable until 14.0-CURRENT nears stable/14 or releng/14.0 …

Page updated, but content of the links need more work.
Comment 3 Graham Perrin 2021-02-07 07:05:57 UTC
Thanks, so the style of URL is changing? For example: <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.2R/relnotes/> is found; <https://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/12-STABLE/relnotes/> is not (yet).

Created attachment 222356 [details] Screenshot of part of the page as it currently appears (In reply to Graham Perrin from comment #3) From a comment in IRC: > … there has NEVER been release notes for STABLE. Clarification ============= My comment #3 was with reference to the page as it currently appears (captured: <https://archive.vn/RMKNe>), which, amongst other things: * refers to <https://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/..releases/> (not found) for RELEASE notes * uses the phrase 'STABLE Release' * refers to <https://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/12-STABLE/relnotes/> (not found). Thoughts ======== If relnotes.html – the primary link at <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/> – is a maintenance burden, and if its intended content already appears elsewhere: * maybe relnotes.html should be removed (with a corresponding edition to <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/>).
