10:55 AM - sudo, X.org, mports updates, port security
I'm in the process of migrating to a newer version of X.org. (7.4) About half of the libraries are updated now. It might be best if users waited on switching.
ctriv has been working on putting Perl 5.10 in src. We've always had it as a port, but as we needed some scripting language (besides shell) for tasks and most ports depend on perl, it made sense to bring it in. This will most likely be included with 0.3+.
I updated our wesnoth port in games yesterday. We've also had many other ports updated including MySQL 5.0.77, 5.1.32, 6.0.9; Postgres 8.3 (new), PHP 5.2.9, Pidgin 2.5.5, Dovecot 1.1.11, phpMyAdmin, squirrelmail, ...
Many of these updates are security related. If you know of a port that is out of date and contains a security bug, please report it to us. We need to get the ports system caught up. I am aware of Opera.
Lastly, there have been some minor issues with sudo recently. It is recommended that users switch to the port version on 0.2.1 and remove the base sudo from their systems until I can get a patch out. sudo in current has already been updated.
