2015-11-03 OpenSSL was updated to 1.0.2d. It should be mostly ABI-compatible to 1.0.1. One notable exception is SSH. It checks that it runs against the version it was compiled. So, you have to update to latest illumos-gate bits or all ssh clients and servers will be broken (pkg update will take care for you if you don't use self-compiled illumos-gate, in case you do, you should recompile it). Note that if you have updated OpenSSL and old ssh bits, default gnome login will fail as it calls ssh-agent.

2013-07-20 Perl was updated to 5.16 

Update instructions:

    1. 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.
    2. 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).
