There are 4 new ports for the week of June 23 to June 30:
Some ports had updates that users should be aware of.
Ports are listed in the order they were committed to the tree:
- Wireless Networking in the Developing World is a free book about designing, implementing, and maintaining low-cost wireless networks. Available in English, Spanish, French and Arabic editions.
- Hatchet is a log parsing/presentation program written for PF firewall logs, such as those found in OpenBSD. It offers a browser-based interface for quickly reviewing log events and performing deeper analysis.
- Argus is a fixed-model real time flow monitor designed to track and report on the status and performance of all network transactions seen in a data network traffic stream. Argus provides a common data format for reporting flow metrics such as connectivity, capacity, demand, loss, delay, and jitter on a per transaction basis. The record format that Argus uses is flexible and extensible, supporting generic flow identifiers and metrics, as well as application/protocol specific information.
- Argus data clients support a range of operations on binary flow data from Argus, such as sorting, aggregation, archival and reporting.
Port update notes:
Deprecate 1.3 and 1.4 due to lack of security updates, end-of-life status or near eol, and bulk build time. This removes the limited Java support we had on arm, powerpc and sparc until such time OpenJDK/IcedTea can replace it. 1.3 and 1.4 ports directories will be removed next release to avoid bit rot.
Remove work-arounds for missing getpwuid_r now that we have it.
SECURITY FIX for SA29727 "Speex Header Processing Vulnerability". (CVE-2008-1686).
Update to Thomas Dickey's fixed version. Add license marker.
Bugfix update to 22.214.171.124, fixing a fairly major problem introduced in 1.4.21 by correcting the order of lock and unlock in a deadlock avoidance macro. No other changes. Not security, but if you're running 1.4.21, you definitely want this.
