Hello Everyone,

The branches supported by the FreeBSD Security Officer have been updated to
reflect the EoL (end-of-life) of FreeBSD 7.1.  The new list of supported
branches is below and at < http://security.freebsd.org/ >.

Users of FreeBSD 7.1 are advised to upgrade promptly to a newer release (most
likely the recently announced FreeBSD 7.4) either by downloading an updated
source tree and building updates manually, or (for i386 and amd64 systems)
using the FreeBSD Update utility as described in the relevant release
announcement.

The current supported branches and expected EoL dates are:

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