    8. Restore Net::Domain that was accidentally removed

    9. On AIX, explicitly list symbol exports when creating a shared library. The previous use of -bexpall did not export symbols with a leading underscore, a problem for the Glib and Gtk2 modules.

    10. In addition to adding paths in /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/etc/include.paths to the module search path, files in /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/etc/include.paths.d are parsed in a similar manner.

  4. The following changes have occurred with the Python 2.4.2 package:

    1. Update openssl dependency from 0.9.7b to 0.9.8e

    2. Upgraded the following modules: Imaging from 1.1.5 to 1.1.6

    3. In addition to adding paths in /opt/TWWfsw/python242/etc/include.paths to the module search path, files in /opt/TWWfsw/python242/etc/include.paths.d are parsed in a similar manner.

  5. TWW Thunderbird has been upgraded from the 1.5.0.x release to the latest 2.0.0.x release. TWW Thunderbird 2.0 has the following new features:
    • Advanced Folder Views: Thunderbird 2 offers a variety of ways for you to organize and display your folders, whether by favorites, recently viewed or folders containing unread messages. As always, you can also set up RSS and newsgroup folders to stay on top of news and your interests. Thunderbird 2 also allows you to maximize your message view pane by opting for a folder drop down menu instead of the traditional sidebar.

    • Message Tagging: Thunderbird 2 allows you to "tag" messages with descriptors such as "To Do" or "Done" or even create your own tags that are specific to your needs. Tags can be combined with saved searches and mail views to make it easier to organize email.

    • Message History Navigation: Thunderbird 2 offers message history navigation that allows you to click "forward" and "back" much like in your Web browser. You can now quickly toggle between messages and folder views.

    • Improved Search: Thunderbird 2 features a find as you type pane that speeds up searches within displayed messages. Thunderbird also offers quick search, which starts showing search results as soon as you start typing in search terms.

    • Saved Searches: Do you find yourself searching for the same subject or message content over and over? Thunderbird 2 saves you time by allowing you to store this search as a folder. Rerunning the search is just a matter of clicking on the saved search folder in the folder pane.

    • Stay Informed: Thunderbird 2 has been updated to provide more informative and relevant message alerts containing sender, subject and message text for newly arrived messages. Folders provide a pop up summarizing new messages in that folder.

    • Secure and Protect Your Mail: Mozilla has bolstered Thunderbird's acclaimed security and privacy measures to ensure that your communications and identity remain safe. It's like having your own security guard online.

    • Phishing Protection: Thunderbird protects you from email scams which try to trick users into handing over personal and confidential information by indicating when a message is a potential phishing attempt. As a second line of defense, Thunderbird warns you when you click on a link which appears to be taking you to a different Web site than the one indicated by the URL in the message.

    • Robust Privacy: Thunderbird 2 offers improved support for user privacy and remote image protection. To ensure a user's privacy, Thunderbird 2 automatically blocks remote images in email messages.

    • Cutting Out the Junk: Mozilla has updated Thunderbird's popular junk mail folders to stay ahead of spam. Each email you receive passes through Thunderbird's leading-edge junk mail filters. Each time you mark messages as spam, Thunderbird "learns" and improves its filtering so you can spend more time reading the mail that matters. Thunderbird can also use your mail provider's spam filters to keep junk mail out of your inbox.

    • Message Templates: Thunderbird 2 allows you to easily set up message templates to save you time - especially if you have to send the same mail message repeatedly.

  6. Ruby and Tcl have been updated to search /opt/TWWfsw/ruby185/etc/include.paths, /opt/TWWfsw/ruby185/etc/include.paths.d and /opt/TWWfsw/tcl84/etc/include.paths, /opt/TWWfsw/tcl84/etc/include.paths.d respectively for additional paths to add to the default module search path, in a similar manner to the same paths under Perl and Python. Package postinstall scripts now update the ".../include.paths.d" directory and only update the ".../include.paths" configuration file when the newer directory mechanism is not available.

  7. Because some core libraries such as expat, fcpackage, freetype, ncurses, readline, tiff, zlib were upgraded to new major releases, all dependent programs have been recompiled and/or updated. The 120 programs updated in this release is partially due to this core library update.

  8. curl has been updated to 7.16.4 from 7.15.1. Among the improvements is support for SFTP and SSH file transfers. Support for this was done under contract with Daniel Stenberg and Simon Josefsson, with the code being released back into the curl and libssh2 projects.

  9. This release is the first to be built with our new chroot build system. All programs on all platforms are now built within a chrooted environment. This makes it easy to snapshot a release and allow simultaneous development for multiple releases. Previously, updating a core library would require a rebuild of all dependent libraries, hindering forward progress with newer releases of core libraries because a security fix in a previous distribution release would require a recompile with the dependencies in place when the distribution was created. Because of this, libraries such as tiff, and zlib were not updated to their newer versions.

  10. The update to GTK+ introduced a requirement on cairo, a multi-platform 2D graphics library. Unfortunately, it does not work with 8-bit X visuals. Therefore, all GTK+ programs require an X server with more than 8-bit visuals.

  11. The fonts package has been updated to the 1.1 release and the IBM Courier and Ghostscript fonts have been added to this package. The IBM Courier font works around a display issue with the AIX system Courier font. In addition, the "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1" path is ignored when searching for fonts by fontconfig, due to display errors with some of the fonts. The Ghostscript fonts serve as a replacement for these fonts.

  12. Fontconfig no longer reads per-directory font cache files. Rather, a local directory is used to cache the system-wide fonts (/var/opt/TWWfsw/fcpackage24/cache), in addition to a per-user "~/.fontconfig" cache directory. The cache entries are specific to the hardware architecture (i.e. "parisc", "sparc", "x86-64", etc.). Unfortunately, the cache entries are not specific to the operating system. Therefore, it is important that all systems have access to the same fonts.

  13. The GAIM IM client has been renamed to Pidgin.

  14. Python 2.5.1 is new in this release and, while Python 2.4.2 is still available, Python 2.5.1 is the new production release. This is the last release to ship Python 2.4.2.

  15. Qt has been upgraded to the 3.3.8 release and, on Solaris 7+, requires the installation of the OpenGL libraries.

  16. This release is the last to support Tru64 UNIX 4.0D.

 

Perl 5.8.6 module search path

Perl has been updated to read a configuration file containing a list of module search paths, /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/etc/include.paths, and to read a directory of configuration files, /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/etc/include.paths.d, containing a list of module search paths. The module search path is augmented by prepending the paths to the default Perl search path. In taint mode, usage of this file is disabled.

The default search path is:

  $ /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/bin/perl -V
  ...
    @INC:
      /opt/TWWfsw/perl586p/vendor/lib/5.8.6/PA-RISC1.1-thread-multi
      /opt/TWWfsw/perl586p/vendor/lib/5.8.6
      /opt/TWWfsw/perl586p/vendor/lib
      /opt/TWWfsw/perl586p/lib/5.8.6/PA-RISC1.1-thread-multi
      /opt/TWWfsw/perl586p/lib/5.8.6
      /opt/TWWfsw/perl586p/lib
      /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/lib/5.8.6/PA-RISC1.1-thread-multi
      /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/lib/5.8.6
      .

To prepend additional site-specific paths to this list, update /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/etc/include.paths.d with the list of additional paths to search:

  $ ls /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/etc/include.paths.d
  01-modules
  02-modules
  $ cat /opt/TWWfsw/perl586/etc/include.paths.d/01-modules
  /opt/site/perl586/modules

Python 2.4.2 module search path

Python has been updated to read a configuration file containing a list of module search paths, /opt/TWWfsw/python242/etc/include.paths, and to read a directory of configuration files, /opt/TWWfsw/python242/etc/include.paths.d, containing a list of module search paths. The module search path is augmented by prepending the paths to the default Python search path.

The default search path is:

  $ /opt/TWWfsw/python242/bin/python
  >>> import sys
  >>> for p in sys.path:
  >>>   print p
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4/plat-sunos5
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4/lib-tk
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4/site-packages
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242p/lib/python2.4/site-packages
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242p/lib/site-python

To prepend additional site-specific paths to this list, update /opt/TWWfsw/python242/etc/include.paths.d with the list of additional paths to search:

  $ ls /opt/TWWfsw/python242/etc/include.paths.d
  01-modules
  02-modules
  $ cat /opt/TWWfsw/python242/etc/include.paths.d/01-modules
  /opt/site/python242/modules
  $ cat /opt/TWWfsw/python242/etc/include.paths.d/02-modules
  /opt/site/python242/user.modules
  $ /opt/TWWfsw/python242/bin/python
  >>> import sys
  >>> for p in sys.path:
  >>>   print p
  /opt/site/python242/modules
  /opt/site/python242/user.modules
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4/plat-sunos5
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4/lib-tk
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242/lib/python2.4/site-packages
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242p/lib/python2.4/site-packages
  /opt/TWWfsw/python242p/lib/site-python
 

Python 2.5.1 module search path

Python has been updated to read a configuration file containing a list of module search paths, /opt/TWWfsw/python25/etc/include.paths, and to read a directory of configuration files, /opt/TWWfsw/python25/etc/include.paths.d, containing a list of module search paths. The module search path is augmented by prepending the paths to the default Python search path.

The default search path is:

  $ /opt/TWWfsw/python25/bin/python
  >>> import sys
  >>> for p in sys.path:
  >>>   print p
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5/plat-sunos5
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5/lib-tk
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5/site-packages
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25p/lib/python2.5/site-packages
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25p/lib/site-python

To prepend additional site-specific paths to this list, update /opt/TWWfsw/python25/etc/include.paths.d with the list of additional paths to search:

  $ ls /opt/TWWfsw/python25/etc/include.paths.d
  01-modules
  02-modules
  $ cat /opt/TWWfsw/python25/etc/include.paths.d/01-modules
  /opt/site/python25/modules
  $ cat /opt/TWWfsw/python25/etc/include.paths.d/02-modules
  /opt/site/python25/user.modules
  $ /opt/TWWfsw/python25/bin/python
  >>> import sys
  >>> for p in sys.path:
  >>>   print p
  /opt/site/python25/modules
  /opt/site/python25/user.modules
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5/plat-sunos5
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5/lib-tk
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25/lib/python2.5/site-packages
  /opt/TWWfsw/python25p/lib/python2.5/site-packages
