The OpenPKG project released version 1.2 of their unique RPM-based
cross-platform Unix software packaging facility. OpenPKG 1.2 provides 361
selected packages which include proven versions of popular Unix software like
Apache, BIND, GCC, GnuPG, MySQL, OpenSSH, Perl, Postfix, Samba and teTeX —
all carefully packaged for easy deployment on the six officially supported
Unix platforms FreeBSD 4.7 and 5.0, Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 and 3.0, and Sun
Solaris 8 and 9. Highlights in this version are a new approach for package
build-time option handling, a fully reorganized and extended packaging of the
Perl 5.8 language, and the availability of a new utility package
“openpkg-tool” which allows automated updating of whole OpenPKG instances with
complex dependencies and used build-time options.
