30 March, 2022 by wiz@NetBSD.org | netbsd
The pkgsrc developers are proud to announce the 74th quarterly release of pkgsrc, the cross-platform packaging system. pkgsrc is available with more than 26,000 packages, running on 23 separate platforms; more information on pkgsrc itself is available at https://www.pkgsrc.org/ In total, 321 packages were added, 56 packages were removed, and 1762 package updates (to 1209 unique packages) were processed since the pkgsrc-2021Q4 release. Updates include 391 Python packages, 186 Ruby packages, 116 Haskell packages, and 38 perl5 packages. For the 2022Q1 release we welcome the following notable packages additions: - FFmpeg 5.0 - Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC) 9.2.1 - Go 1.18 - Guile 3.0.7 - njs 0.7.2 - Ruby 3.1 As always, many packages have been brought up to date relative to upstream, e.g. Go, Python, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, PHP, Ruby. We omit almost all micro updates below, and welcome the following notable updates: - boost 1.78.0 - certbot 1.25.0 - cmake 3.22.3 - Firefox 91.7.0 (as an ESR), 97.0.2 - GNURadio 184.108.40.206 - harfbuzz 4.0.1 - KiCad 6.0.2 - LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 - llvm/clang/lldb 13.0.1 - Mesa 21.3.7 - Node.js 14.19.0 - Python 3.7.13, 3.8.13, 3.9.12, 3.10.4 - qgis 3.22.5 - Rust 1.58.1 - SQLite 3.38.1 - unison 2.52.0 - WebKitGTK 2.34.6 This branch we say notable goodbyes to: - Python 3.6 Changes to the pkgsrc infrastructure and notes: - www/nginx and www/nginx-devel now support dynamic modules - Note that Firefox, Thunderbird and likely other packages with difficult dependencies do not build on NetBSD 8 and other systems with non-recent compilers. Users who wish to run these programs are advised to update to NetBSD 9 or newer versions of other operating systems. - Firefox 78 remains because there is a problem with Firefox 91 using the microphone on NetBSD. Instructions on using the binary package manager can be found at https://pkgin.net, and pkgsrc itself can be retrieved from via CVS or tar file, and also from a mirror at https://github.com/NetBSD/pkgsrc. See https://www.netbsd.org/docs/pkgsrc/getting.html for instructions. The branch name for the 2022Q1 branch is "pkgsrc-2022Q1".
