pkgsrc-2015Q4 binary packages for illumos now available
I'm pleased to announce that the pkgsrc-2015Q4 binary package sets for
illumos are now available, with over 14,800 packages available. This
is a new LTS release, and will receive security and important fixes
for the next 3 years.
As always you can install them using the instructions here:
SmartOS users can use the 15.4.0 image sets which will be available
within the next few days.
Major changes in this quarterly release are:
* Many package additions, including PHP 7.0 and Python 3.5.
* The default compiler is now GCC 4.9.3. All of our GCC 4.7 patches
have been ported forward, including multiarch support, disabling
of -fomit-frame-pointer, support for -fstrict-calling-conventions,
TLS emulation fixes, and the disabling of fixincludes.
* clang-3.7.0 is provided as an alternative compiler, with patches
to fix the default illumos environment, allowing over 12,000
packages to build from pkgsrc using clang.
* All packages are now built with "-gdwarf-2" and the core bootstrap
packages are no longer stripped, ensuring software can be debugged
