    Release Notes: This is the first release of the MonetDB suite that does not contain MonetDB4 and MonetDB/XQuery. Work on the Pathfinder compiler, which forms the basis of MonetDB/XQuery, continues at The University of Tübingen. This release uses a slightly changed SQL catalog. The catalog will be updated automatically the first time an SQL database is opened. Highly experimental FreeBSD binaries are now available. The software should run as well as on any other system, but the packaging is obviously different from other systems.
