Yes, I did it! from 11.2 to 12.0. First time I did this as binary upgrade. Last FreeBSD (years ago) was using
make buildworld
make buildkernel
The modern way is much easier, faster.
Full test is outstanding but I didn‘t see any problems during upgrade. BTW is there a way to log all output during upgrade?

@Photor could capture the shell with script(1) or pipe 2>&1 | tee | logger to get it into syslog

@feld Ah, yes. I remember this script(1) thing (redirecting all output into a log file). Thank you. Next time I will try this. BTW: time to read „Absolute BSD“ again.
