Yes.  The latest release is certainly available as a torrent, and
documented as such in the release announcement:

    http://www.freebsd.org/releases/4.11R/announce.html

Release via torrent is still considered experimental, which is
probably why it isn't mentioned more prominently on the web site.

See:

    http://people.freebsd.org/~kensmith/4.11-torrent/

5.3-RELEASE is also available as a torrent. =20
