Announcing the pkgsrc-2023Q1 branch
1 April, 2023 by gdt@NetBSD.org | netbsd
The pkgsrc developers are proud to announce the 78th quarterly release of pkgsrc, the cross-platform packaging system. pkgsrc is available with more than 27,000 packages, and supports 23 platforms, of which 10 are currently known to be working. More information on pkgsrc itself is available at https://www.pkgsrc.org/ Since the pkgsrc-2022Q4 release, 244 packages were added, 39 removed, and 2154 package updates (to 1487 unique packages) were processed. These include 363 Ruby, 361 Python, 150 Haskell, 58 perl5, and 5 PHP package updates. 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 2023Q1 release we welcome the following notable packages additions: - arti 1.1.1 - cde 2.5.1 - ghc 9.4.4 - git-branchless 0.7.1 - gnunet 0.19.2 - Go 1.20.2 - iamb 0.0.7 - Jitsi Meet ancilliary programs - kotlin 1.8.10 - Ruby 3.2.1 - swig4 4.1.1 - many language support grammars for tree-sitter - xdiary 3.0.3 - yubikey-manager-qt 1.2.5 We welcome the following notable updates: - certbot 2.4.0 - CMake 3.26.0 - Firefox 110.0.1 - HarfBuzz 7.0.0 - matrix-synapse 1.78.0 - NodeJS 19.7.0 - Rust 1.66.1 - Thunderbird 102.8.0 - Xfce 4.18 - yt-dlp 2023.3.4 As always, many packages have been brought up to date relative to upstream micro releases.
