:DragonFly version X even though you are on DragonFly version Y" warning,
:but they should be just fine; we didn't do anything to break binary
:compatibility between 2.4 and 2.6 as I recall.
I'm not sure I trust the 2.4-built packages for 2.6. Over the last few

so its almost there.
The base 2.6 img/iso files for x86_64 and i386 are on avalon already.
I'm still working on the gui image.
The release page will go live when the package build set is done,
which is looking like later this evening or tomorrow, but if you
don't care about the binary packages you can access it directly:
