AUTHOR: [email protected]

Varnish 3.x has reached End of Life status and has been removed from
the ports tree. If you were using www/varnish we urge you to to update
to www/varnish4. The upgrade guide can be found here:

https://www.varnish-cache.org/docs/trunk/whats-new/upgrade-4.0.html

www/varnish-libvmod-header and www/varnish-nagios have been updated to
versions that work with Varnish 4.x. You should not lose access to
this software.

www/pecl-varnish was updated to the latest release which has added
support for Varnish 4.x. Please note that it appears some
functionality has been lost. This is unfortunate but out of our
control. Details can be found here:

http://pecl.php.net/package-changelog.php?package=varnish

If for some reason you need www/varnish to exist in your ports tree
for a bit longer you may consider instead following the 2015Q2 branch.
Do note however that Varnish 3.x will not be receiving updates or
security patches from upstream.

The Test::Tester and Test::use::ok modules have been rolled into
devel/p5-Test-Simple, and are included in perl 5.22. The p5-Test-Tester
and p5-Test-use-ok modules will be removed in one month.

If you use either of those ports and have perl-5.22 installed:

pkg delete p5-Test-Tester p5-Test-use-ok

If you use either of those ports and have perl-5.20 or lower installed:

portmaster -o devel/p5-Test-Simple p5-Test-Tester

AFFECTS: users of security/libressl
AUTHOR: [email protected]

After upgrading libressl, manually update all packages that depend on
this library since its version has changed. Normally, you can obtain the
list of dependent software by running the following command:

pkg query -e '%n = libressl' %ro

Then you should rebuild all ports depending on libressl to avoid dangling
shared library dependencies.

AFFECTS: users of lang/perl5*
AUTHOR: [email protected]

The default Perl version has been switched to Perl 5.20. If you are using
binary packages to upgrade your system, you do not have anything to do, pkg
upgrade will do the right thing. For the other people, assuming you are
migrating from 5.18 to 5.20, do:

Portupgrade users:
portupgrade -o lang/perl5.20 -f lang/perl5.18

portupgrade -f `pkg shlib -R libperl.so.5.18|tail +2`

Portmaster users:
portmaster -o lang/perl5.20 lang/perl5.18

portmaster -f `pkg shlib -R libperl.so.5.18|tail +2`

NOTE:
Perl has been removed from base more than ten years ago, so it was way past
time for the /usr/bin/perl symlink to be removed from the port. If for
some strange reason, you still need it, you will have to create it
manually.

IMPORTANT:
In case you have not updated your system in a while, and specifically,
followed the 20141126 instructions regarding the new Perl layout, you
should follow those more extensive instructions rather than the
conservative presented here.

AFFECTS: users of net/asterisk13 with PJSIP (default on) and SRTP (default off) options enabled
AUTHOR: [email protected]

This applies ONLY TO USERS COMPILING FROM PORTS:
To avoid dependency problems, you must remove the pjsip port
before upgrading asterisk13.

# pkg delete pjsip
# portmaster -a

These steps are unnecessary for those using binary packages.

Please see the 20150323 entry for background about this problem.

AFFECTS: users of net/asterisk13 with PJSIP (default on) and SRTP (default off) options enabled
AUTHOR: [email protected]

Due to asterisk13 requiring conflicting port options for the net/pjsip
dependency when the SRTP option is enabled together with the PJSIP
one I have created a new slave port to pjsip to enforce the
required option so asterisk can enforce that option with a
conditional dependency.

Users building custom packages with poudriere should have no
problems, since pkgng is able to handle the change automatically.

For users compiling from ports a simple update of asterisk will
keep it working because the already installed pjsip port will
satisfy the dependency. They anyway should, when convenient,
disinstall the pjsip port(this will also disinstall asterisk13)
and rebuild asterisk13 to force it to grab the correct dependency
to avoid problems with future updates.

Please check the 20150323 entry in this file which has some
background about this problem.

AFFECTS: User of security/sguil
AUTHOR: [email protected]

security/sguil was erroneously provisioned a UID that conflicted with
the dns/dnscrypt-proxy port. A new UID and GID of 991 has been issued.

Existing users will be able to upgrade the sguil packages without
issue. The existing UID will continue to be used. If you do a clean
install of security/sguil on a new server and migrate files or
intentionally delete the sguil user and group and reinstall you may
run into permissions issues.

Examples include the /var/run/sguild and /usr/local/etc/sguild directories.

Ruby Bot now has a new upstream maintainer. The project has been updated
to work with Ruby 2.0+. Some migration is needed to move away from
BDB regristry files. The guide for that is at
https://github.com/ruby-rbot/rbot/wiki/MigrationGuide

rbotdb can be used to backup a BDB database and then restore it to a working
format for the new rbot. Update your conf.yaml after with 'core.db: tc'
once converted.

AFFECTS: Users of dns/bind9*
AUTHOR: [email protected]

This is only for FreeBSD 10.0+.

BIND auto chroot has been added back to the named rc script. As enabling it
by default would most certainly break people's setup, it is not. To enable
it, and chroot it in /var/named, add the following line to your rc.conf file:

named_chrootdir="/var/named"

On first launch, the rc script will move the /usr/local/etc/namedb directory
into the chroot, and create a symlink to it.

Note that, if you're running from within a jail, you need to have a
/var/named/dev devfs created beforehand, with the null and random devices.
