pkgsrc 2008Q2 is out

The most recent quarterly branch of pkgsrc is out.  Read the release announcement for details of new changes, which include an improved Ruby Gems framework and Joerg’s work on DESTDIR (staged installs) support.

The binary packages on pkgbox for DragonFly were built with a prerelease version of this branch.  (Please, use a mirror as soon as it propagates.)

    Hmmm …. the packages were built with DragonFly 2.0, but my installation from the .iso is DragonFly 2.0.0 …. very interesting.

  2. I was messing with uname to get these packages the right label, as these were built on a 2.1.0 system that was effectively 2.0.0. I goofed, thinking “2.0 is numerically the same as 2.0.0, so of course it won’t matter.”
