Announcing the pkgsrc 2022Q3 branch
29 September, 2022 by wiz@NetBSD.org | netbsd
The pkgsrc developers are proud to announce the 76th quarterly release of pkgsrc, the cross-platform packaging system. pkgsrc is available with more than 26,500 packages, and supports 24 platforms, of which 10 are currently known to be working. More information on pkgsrc itself is available at https://www.pkgsrc.org/ In total, 167 packages were added, 80 packages were removed, and 1931 package updates (to 1390 unique packages) were processed since the pkgsrc-2022Q2 release. Updates include 37 Haskell, 65 perl5 packages, 414 Python packages, 270 Ruby packages, and 165 Tex packages. This announcement takes a high-level view, grouping related packages under a single name, and treating multiple versions of an upstream package as a logical unit. Thus, 'gcc 12', while a new entry 'lang/gcc12', is an update to 'lang/gcc*'. For the 2022Q3 release we welcome the following notable packages additions: - scalapack 2.2.0 We welcome the following notable updates: - certbot 1.30.0 - CMake 3.24.1 - Emacs 28.2 - FFmpeg 5.1.1 - Firefox 104.0.2 - GIMP 2.99.12 (GTK3 version) - Go 1.19.1 (1.18 is still the default for this branch) - HarfBuzz 5.1.0 - LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 - matrix-synapse 1.66.0 - NodeJS 18.8.0 - QEMU 7.1 - Rust 1.62.1 - WebKitGTK 2.36.8 - wxGTK 3.2 - yt-dlp 2022.9.1 As always, many packages have been brought up to date relative to upstream micro releases.

Users who wish to run these programs are advised to update to an up-to-date version of their operating system.
