Heads up for EDGE Users

For those of you running the EDGE package set, be aware that  PKGNG 1.4.0 is just around the corner, and we are updating the PC-BSD EDGE repo to start testing BETA2 of it right now. The packages are building, and should be available in around 24-48 hours.

Also, we found some major bugs in pkg this weekend, which can leave some packages installed, but with their respective files on disk missing. Kris is testing a work-around at the moment, so if you want to avoid some of the churn, it may be wise to wait a few days for this fix and for the dust to settle from the update to pkgng 1.4.0.b2.

If you have already upgraded and have issues with a missing pcbsd-utils, functions.sh, etc, you can fix your system by running the following commands:

# /usr/sbin/pkg install -fy pcbsd-libsh
# /usr/sbin/pkg install -fy pcbsd-syscache
# /usr/sbin/pkg install -fy life-preserver
# /usr/sbin/pkg install -fy warden
# /usr/sbin/pkg install -fy pbi-manager

If you find any issues, please see if they have been reported yet at bugs.pcbsd.org, and if not, report the details.
