FreeBSD binary packages available again

The FreeBSD Project has announced that all  binary package building services are restored and live again.

This service was put on hold following a security incident in November 2012. Consequently, the security throughout the FreeBSD Project’s infrastructure has been reviewed and the package-building system (including redports.org and ports QAT) has been re-engineered to support greater compartmentalisation and resilience.

FreeBSD binary packages are available again for the 8.x, 9.x branches on i386 and amd64 architectures at the usual locations.
