AFFECTS: users of databases/db6
AUTHOR: [email protected]

Oracle Berkeley DB 6 has been upgraded to version 6.1.19. Since the
previous 6.0 version, the log file format has changed in 6.1.
Depending on applications used, you may need to take action BEFORE you
upgrade. For details, please see the online upgrade manual at
<http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17076_04/html/upgrading/upgrade_process.html>
<http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17076_04/html/installation/upgrade_61_toc.html>

Note: if you've got Apache installed and depending on db6, you may
need to upgrade it separately BEFORE upgrading other ports.

Note: some GNOME-related ports, for instance, evolution-data-server,
cannot be built if their older version is installed because they run
their own executables at build-time and prefer libraries from
$LOCALPATH over freshly-built ones. For these ports, deinstall
them with pkg_delete -f or pkg delete -f before trying to upgrade them.

After that, you must rebuild all applications that link to db6 because
the shared library name has changed with the upgrade. To do that:

If you use portmaster:
portmaster -w -r db6-
If you use portupgrade:
portupgrade -fr databases/db6

AFFECTS: Users of Java
AUTHOR: [email protected]

The default version of OpenJDK has been updated from 1.6 to 1.7. To update,
users of Java will need to rebuild all ports that depend on Java:

If you use pkg (regardless of if you build ports from source or install
binary packages):
# pkg set -o java/openjdk6:java/openjdk7

If you use portmaster to build ports from source:

# portmaster -o java/openjdk7 openjdk6
# portmaster -R -r openjdk

If you use portupgrade to build ports from source:

# portupgrade -fo java/openjdk7 java/openjdk6

If you use pkg to install prebuilt binary packages:

# pkg install -fR java/openjdk7

If you wish to keep the 1.6 version as default, add the following lines to
your /etc/make.conf file:

#
# Keep OpenJDK 1.6 as default version.
