Ports and Packages for Supported Releases

May 12, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Portmgr published a new page on their website which describes the current support and EoL policies for the ports tree and released packages. The main take-home messages are:

  • Support of FreeBSD releases by ports and the ports infrastructure matches the policies set out by the FreeBSD Security Officer.
  • Package builds will use the oldest supported minor release within each major branch to ensure ABI and KBI backwards compatability within each major branch, and support all minor versions of each major branch, including -RELEASE and -STABLE.

See the full policy on the portmgr webpage.
