AFFECTS: users of databases/db4, databases/db4[1-7]*
AUTHOR: [email protected]

HEADS UP: for some applications that store their data in Berkeley DB
databases, you may have to export the data before the upgrade and
reload it afterwards. Detailed instructions are at
<https://wiki.freebsd.org/Ports/BerkeleyDBCleanup>.

The older databases/db4* ports providing versions 4.0 to 4.7
inclusively have been removed, and 4.8 has been deprecated.
The default Berkeley DB version is now 5.3.
(6.x has a different license, but will be eligible as default on
systems that build ports from source and have db6 installed.)
All enabled and working ports have been changed such that they use
Berkeley DB 4.8 or newer, and an -exp run has been made.

After you have performed the first steps from the Wiki documentation,
and have arrived at a step that reads "build all applications", then
type as privileged user and without the hash sign:

# Tools/scripts/BDB-upgrade-helper.sh

The helper script requires that ports-mgmt/portmaster or
.../portupgrade is installed, will try to upgrade your applications
with either of these tools (portmaster preferred), and if that succeeds,
it will attempt to delete the packages if confirmed interactively.

AUTHOR: [email protected]

The OpenEXR and ilmbase (Industrial Light and Magic) shared object
names have changed. You must rebuild all packages that require either
of these libraries, by using one of these commands:

# portmaster -r ilmbase -r OpenEXR
or
# portupgrade -fr graphics/ilmbase graphics/OpenEXR

The PORTREVISIONS of all ports that require ilmbase and/or OpenEXR
have been bumped.

AFFECTS: users of lang/ghc and */hs-*
AUTHOR: [email protected]

The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compiler has been updated to version
7.8.3 and Haskell Platform to 2014.2.0.0. Hence it is recommended to
rebuild or reinstall all the dependent ports by one of the following
commands:

# portmaster -w -r ghc
or
# portupgrade -fr lang/ghc
or
# pkg upgrade

The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compiler has been updated to version
7.8.3 and Haskell Platform to 2014.2.0.0. Hence it is recommended to
rebuild or reinstall all the dependent ports and the lang/ghc port
itself by one of the following commands:

# portmaster -w -r ghc
or
# portupgrade -fr lang/ghc

If you use pkg(8) then it is just safer to remove all the GHC-dependent
packages along with GHC and reinstall everything from scratch.
Something alone these lines may work:

# pkg query "%ro" > ghc-pkgs.txt
# pkg delete -y lang/ghc
# pkg install -y `cat ghc-pkgs.txt | grep -Ev "/hs-(haskeline|terminfo|transformers|xhtml)"

AFFECTS: users of www/ajaxplorer
AUTHOR: [email protected]

The ajaxplorer project was renamed to pydio.

Due to this update some manual steps will need to be performed
after updating the port.

IMPORTANT: Perform a backup of the ajaxplorer installation and
the databases backing it(if you're using that feature).

First manually remove the ajaxplorer port and install www/pydio
afterwards.

Further steps will be avbailable in the pkg-message, which can
be shown with these commands:

# pkg info -D pydio

# pkg_info -D pydio

AUTHOR: [email protected]

Before updating ports-mgmt/pkg, please make sure that there are no doubled
entries in ${LOCALBASE}/etc/pkg.conf (/usr/local/etc/pkg.conf by default).
Especially a doubled "leaf: " entry in the ALIAS settings of the default
configuration may cause pkg to break during the update.
