                      3: PKGSRC NEWS
                      4: ===========
                      5:
                      6:   This file contains information about important infrastructural changes in
                      7:   pkgsrc. The intended readers are the pkgsrc developers as well as anyone

1.6     ! joerg      10: buildlink3.mk layout changed [joerg 2009-03-20]
        !            11:        The buildlink3.mk files have been reorganized to reduce
        !            12:        redundant parsing for deeply nested buildlink3 trees.
        !            13:        The createbuildlink package has been updated to create
        !            14:        the new format.

1.5       tnn        16: PLIST_VARS introduced [jlam 20080413]
                     17:        PLIST_VARS is a simpler way to do conditional PLIST entries.
                     18:        The old method of doing e.g. PLIST_SUBST+= FOO="@comment " can
                     19:        now be done by unconditionally setting PLIST_VARS+=foo and
                     20:        conditionally setting PLIST.foo=yes. This will result in substitution
                     21:        of ${PLIST.foo} in the PLIST with either "" or "@comment ".
                     22:
1.3       rillig     23: SKIP_PORTABILITY_CHECK is obsolete [rillig 20080220]
                     24:        After being deprecated for about 16 months, this early misdesign
                     25:        has finally been obsoleted and removed from pkgsrc.

1.4       rillig     27: Check for stripped/unstripped binaries [rillig 20080213]
                     28:        A new check has been added in mk/check/check-stripped.mk to
                     29:        assure that the installed binaries conform to the setting of the
                     30:        INSTALL_UNSTRIPPED variable. It is not enabled by default due to
                     31:        lack of testing.
                     32:

                     64:        X.org packages and set X11_TYPE=modular in mk.conf.
