2013-07-20 Perl was updated to 5.16
- To install new perl-516 firstly update perl-510. Old perl-510 ships hardlinks. It was updated to install mediated links. Note, it is just old repackaged perl 5.10.0 from /dev compiled with Sun Studio, only manifest was patched to deliver mediated links. Perl 5.10 is still used while compiling illumos-gate.
- If you just update old library/perl-5/database and other modules you'll receive new packages, which are just meta-packages, new packages will likely pull library/perl-5/*-516 packages and you'll stay without old modules, so remember to install corresponding library/perl-5/*-5100 packages after update (if someone is interested 5100 stands for perl 5.10.0).
2013-08-20 MariaDB 5.5 is used as default MySQL provider
2013-10-11 PHP 5.2 removed (replaced by PHP 5.4)
2013-11-14 PostgreSQL 8.2 and 8.3 packages removed (replaced by PostgreSQL 9.3, which is now a default PostgreSQL version)
2013-12-10 IPS was updated. IPS GUI - package-manager and update-manager - was removed. If you hosted local IPS servers you have to recreate services, which supported these servers. Procedure is the same (and described, for example, here http://wiki.illumos.org/display/illumos/Redistributing+built+packages ) , but old services just don't work after update.
