The pkgsrc developers are proud to announce the 67th quarterly release of pkgsrc, the cross-platform packaging system. pkgsrc is available with more than 22,000 packages, running on 23 separate platforms; more information on pkgsrc itself is available at https://www.pkgsrc.org/ In total, 440 packages were added, 111 packages were removed, and 2,844 package updates (to 2,146 unique packages) were processed since the pkgsrc-2020Q1 release. As well as a large number of new Haskell-based packages, for the 2020Q1 release we also welcome the following notable packages additions and changes to the pkgsrc collection: - Blender 2.83 - Firefox 68.9.0, 77.0.1 - Go 1.13.11, 1.14.4 - LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 - LXQt-0.15.0 - MATE 1.24.1 - Mesa 20.0.6 - Mutt 1.14.5 - MySQL 5.7.30 - NeoMutt 20200619 - Nextcloud 19.0.0 - Node.js 10.21.0, 12.18.0, 14.4.0 - notqmail 1.0.8 - OpenJDK 22.214.171.124.10 - PHP 7.2.31, 7.3.19, 7.4.7 - pkgin 20.5.1 - pkglint 20.2.0 - postgis 3.0.1 - PostgreSQL 9.5.22, 9.6.18, 10.13, 11.8, 12.3 - PowerDNS 4.2.2, PowerDNS Recursor 4.3.1 - Python 2.7.18, 3.6.10, 3.7.7, 3.8.3 - qgis 3.10.7 - Ruby 2.7.1 - Ruby On Rails 126.96.36.199 - Rust 1.43.1/1.44.0 - SQLite 3.32.3 - Squid 4.12 - TeX Live 2020 - VLC 3.0.11 - WebKitGTK 2.28.2 - WeeChat 2.8 - Xfce 4.14.2 We say notable goodbyes to: - Many legacy GNOME2 packages - MySQL 5.5 - OpenJDK 7 - PostgreSQL 9.4 - Ruby 2.4 - Squid 3 Changes to the pkgsrc infrastructure: - Users can now select the type of rust compiler with RUST_TYPE. This defaults to "src" on most platforms for the traditional bootstrap process. For certain platform tiers, Rust publishes official binaries, which can be selected with "bin" to avoid the lengthy bootstrap process. This includes x86_64 Darwin, NetBSD, and Linux. - RUST_TYPE defaults to bin on NetBSD/amd64. This is a workaround for difficulties with the normal (source build with a binary bootstrap) build method. - gfortran is now always the default Fortran compiler instead of g95. This is expected to work better on newer CPU architectures and support a wider range of software. - Lua 5.3 is now the default version of Lua. - Note that firefox does not build on NetBSD 8 (although www/firefox-esr does), and this seems unlikely to be resolved. Users who wish to run the non-extended support version of firefox are advised to update to NetBSD 9. Instructions on using the binary package manager can be found at http://pkgin.net, and pkgsrc itself can be retrieved from https://github.com/NetBSD/pkgsrc or via cvs or tar file -- see https://www.netbsd.org/docs/pkgsrc/getting.html. The branch name for the 2020Q2 branch is "pkgsrc-2020Q2".
