12:42 AM - Perl 5.10.1 in mports

I've updated the Perl port to 5.10.1.  However, I noticed later in the day there is a known security issue with Perl 5.10.1 in relation to utf-8 characters.  I'll look into a patch tomorrow.

MidnightBSD current contains Perl 5.10 which is not vulnerable. 


11:00 AM - mports work

I just updated the egroupware and unzip ports.  The former update is a major version jump 1.4 to 1.6 and includes many security updates.  Optional components for mail and ldap must be installed separately if you choose to use those modules.  The latter contains updates for handling symbolic links as well as fixes for fetching the source distribution.

crash@ and I have been working on getting gnome ports updated to 2.26.  He's done most of the work so far, but I did get Mk extensions updated and a few ports last night.  Assume the gnome system is broken until we get this done.  Also, note that KDE 3.5.10 should build on midnightbsd 0.2.x but several ports are broken on current.  You can work around this by installing many things manually without using the meta package.  The sysadmin related tools are broken and possibly some of the multimedia stuff.  While, I was going to fix this, I think my time might be better spent getting KDE 4.x working instead.  Gnome will come first, however.
