In keeping with the regular quarterly pkgsrc releases, I’m pleased to announce that packages from the pkgsrc-2012Q4 branch are now available for general illumos platforms.

As usual, the quick start instructions are:

$ curl -s \
    | gtar -zxf - -C /
$ PATH=/opt/pkg/sbin:/opt/pkg/bin:$PATH
$ pkgin -y up
$ pkgin avail | wc -l
$ pkgin search <package>
$ pkgin -y install <package> <package...>

For those interested in helping to increase the number of packages available, the bulk build report for this set is available here. It would be great to get past the 10,000 mark!
