Starting with the upcoming 6.6 release, you'll be able to upgrade with the
'sysupgrade' command:


sysupgrade will download the new version and upgrade your system
automagically. After rebooting into 6.6, you'll want to run 'sysmerge' to
merge/update any config files that have changed, and run 'pkg_add -u' to
upgrade any installed packages.

Before you start, be sure to review the upgrade guide for any items that
need special attention:
