The pkgsrc-2006Q1 Branch
The pkgsrc developers are very proud to announce the new pkgsrc-2006Q1
branch, which has support for more packages than previous branches.
As well as updated versions of many packages, the infrastructure of
pkgsrc itself has been improved for better platform and compiler
support, and also for enhanced security.
At the same time, the pkgsrc-2005Q4 branch has been deprecated, and
continuing engineering starts on the pkgsrc-2006Q1 branch.
Some highlights of the new pkgsrc-2006Q1 branch are:
+ many, many packages have been updated to newer versions, to take
advantage of fixes and improved functionality. This includes
+ postgresql 8.1.3
+ X.org 6.9
+ the addition of some pertinent bright, shiny packages such
as apache-tomcat-5.5.14, cdrtools, nagios, qt4, strace,
sunbird, and suse 10 packages better to support Linux
