It is official Froyo, but source code only. Won't do you any good unless you're a developer. But at least this confirms our Monday release.

No, trust me I was hoping the same thing lol. It is a .tar file, but the code is not compiled - it's all raw, won't flash.

Odin wipes everything squeaky clean when it flashes. Doesn't matter what OS/version you're on. When we get a working .tar file, you can flash your phone as is (but of course everything will be erased and you will loose root, EXT4, etc).

Open source release for the Epic 4G Questions
I hate to be a noob, but I don't understand all the recent talk about the new Froyo release for the Epic. The Epic is my first Android phone ever and its proven to be a solid choice, but if it gets better, then I'd love to see how much better. It's Feb 21 and my phone has not received the upgrade, what does this mean? Do I download the Open Source Code on Samsung's website? Do I just wait? Any help would be appreciated.

Just wait for the notification to come on your phone. Open source code was only valueable to the developers. Nothing to install

you do not download that. the open source code is for the developers. you will be able to update your phone over the air so you can have your phone manually check (settings - about phone - system update - update firmware) to see if it is available yet or wait for your phone to receive the update notification
EDIT: Paul beat me to it. What he says.
