PKGSRC NEWS
===========

  This file contains information about important infrastructural changes in
  pkgsrc. The intended readers are the pkgsrc developers as well as anyone
  tracking pkgsrc-current.

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

PLIST_VARS introduced [jlam 20080413]
	PLIST_VARS is a simpler way to do conditional PLIST entries.
	The old method of doing e.g. PLIST_SUBST+= FOO="@comment " can
	now be done by unconditionally setting PLIST_VARS+=foo and
	conditionally setting PLIST.foo=yes. This will result in substitution
	of ${PLIST.foo} in the PLIST with either "" or "@comment ".

SKIP_PORTABILITY_CHECK is obsolete [rillig 20080220]
	After being deprecated for about 16 months, this early misdesign
	has finally been obsoleted and removed from pkgsrc.

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

OpenSSL update [tnn 20080118]
	OpenSSL in pkgsrc switched from the 0.9.7 to the 0.9.8 branch. To
	accomodate for this, 596 packages dependent on openssl had their
	revisions bumped.

pkgsrc-2007Q4 released [agc 20080105]
	A new stable branch was released. Read the announcement at:
	http://mail-index.netbsd.org/netbsd-announce/2008/01/05/0000.html

Simplifying meta-packages [rillig 20071219]
	The variable META_PACKAGE was introduced. This simplifies creation
	and maintenance of packages that do not install files.

Replace a package with different name [gdt 20071107]
	The variable OLDNAME was introduced for "make replace" to
	replace a package with a name other than the new one, via
	"make replace OLDNAME=oldpkgname".  Read the announcement at:
	http://mail-index.netbsd.org/tech-pkg/2007/11/07/0002.html
	
pkgsrc-2007Q3 released [agc 20071015]
	A new stable branch was released. Read the announcement at:
	http://mail-index.netbsd.org/netbsd-announce/2007/10/15/0000.html

Features framework [jlam 20070907]
	A "system features" framework has been added. It will be used to
	automatically supply missing "basic" headers and libraries for old
	systems. This is supported through the USE_FEATURES variable.

X.org 6.9 removed [joerg 20070817]
	monolithic X.org 6.9 was removed from pkgsrc. It was obsoleted by the
	modular X.org (7.x) packages. Transitioning users should remove all old
	X.org packages and set X11_TYPE=modular in mk.conf.

Emulator framework [jlam 20070729]
	A new emulator framework has been added. This will handle all
	binary-only packages that require emulation on the native OS.
	Please see pkgsrc/mk/emulator/README.

audit-packages merged with pkg_install [adrianp 20070714]
	The utility for auditing installed packages for security problems,
	audit-packages, has been rewritten in C. It is now part of the
	pkgtools/pkg_install package.
	
pkgsrc-2007Q2 released [agc 20070701]
	A new stable branch was released. Read the announcement at:
