pkgsrc-2015Q3 packages for illumos and OS X now available

I'm pleased to announce that binary packages for illumos and OS X
based on pkgsrc-2015Q3 are now available.  Notable changes in this
quarterly release are:

  * Default version bumps for the following major packages:

    Lua 5.1 -> 5.2
    PostgreSQL 9.3 -> 9.4
    PHP 5.5 -> 5.6
    Ruby 1.9.3 -> 2.0.0

  * All platforms now include the significant improvements to pkgin as
    detailed in my recent blog post:

  * OS X users created by pkgsrc no longer show up in the login
    window.  To clear out existing users, you can use this method to
    delete users/groups around the 300 mark prior to installation:

    $ dscl . -list /Users UniqueID | sort -k2n
    $ dscl . -delete /Users/username

    $ dscl . -list /Groups PrimaryGroupID | sort -k2n
    $ dscl . -delete /Groups/groupname

The available package counts according to "pkgin avail" are:

  OS X 32-bit:        11,373
  OS X 64-bit:        13,139

  illumos i386:       14,631
  illumos x86_64:     14,627
  illumos multiarch:  13,503

Installation instructions are here:

For SmartOS users, 15.3.0 images should be available later this week.
