Dear users,

There is a new binary package set available for master and RELEASE.

It's based in FreeBSD Ports as of Sun Feb 21 16:49:33 2021 with a few  
minor cherry-picks.

You can use the "Bullet-proof (conflict-proof) upgrade technique" as  
described here:

Users that wish to report issues with specific packages, please open

Developers that wish to submit fixes, please go here:

29260 packages available

29310 packages available

For those who are not using the official mirror, take in account the  
mirrors take around 24-48h to pull all the packages.


* Although we use LibreSSL for our builds, the recent OpenSSL CVE is  
covered by this update, the version available is 1.1.1k.

* If you happen to upgrade pkg from 1.14.x to 1.16.x and above, you'll  
get the following error:

     pkg: Failed to execute lua script: [string "-- args:
     etc/pkg.conf.sample..."]:12: attempt to call a nil value (field 'stat')
     pkg: lua script failed
     No active remote repositories configured.

   It's a known bug, simply copy the sample mirror config file over:

     # cp /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/df-latest.conf.sample

* If you're running an old master or not up-to-date RELEASE and you  
plan to build DPorts yourself, please make sure you have a sh(1)  
version with 'pipefail' supported.

   You can find out with:

      # sh -c 'set -o pipefail'

   Update your sh(1) by running as root:

      # cd /usr/src/bin/sh && make all install clean

   That's the quick way, the recommended way is updating your  
installation as specified in build(7) manpage.

* bmake has been updated in master, if you're going to build packages  
yourself make sure that either you have the pre-update bmake (master  
commit a5b3c0e8b1 or older) or the fully upgraded bmake (master commit  
c9ed6119c1 or newer). If you're caught in the middle, you might  
experience some weird failures during package build.
