You could use "vserver" script from freevps-tools for build new vps server:
vserver <vps-name> build <vps-number>

Let me explain: version 1.2 has already released but version 1.3 is in
beta-state now, we announce future features of 1.3 for information purpose

It was some period when we hide all rpms based on rh kernel 2.4.18 because we
found heavy critical bug in original kernel code. So FreeVPS 1.2 imediately
migrated to kernel 2.4.21 and now full pack of FreeVPS 1.2 rpms is available
for download.

All of our _release_ versions are production-ready. We release new versions
only after full test cycle.
FreeVPS 1.2 is a production-ready release.

>Will the web site be updated to match what files are actually available to

Our web site has been already updated.
For binary rpms see:
If you want source rpm you could download this URL:
