As of September 2008, PC-BSD release version numbers are the same as FreeBSD's. When the first number of a release is followed by a zero, this means that this version of PC-BSD introduces many new features. When the second number of a release is not a zero, this means that the new version may have some new features, but it mostly fixes known software problems and security vulnerabilities. If a release includes the letters RC, this means that it is a "Release Candidate", or that the developers are still adding and fixing features and need testers to help them find any existing problems. If the release includes the word BETA, this means that this version is still buggy and needs the help of testers to find as many problems as possible so they can be fixed.
