pkgng: FreeBSD's new package manager released
It’s been a long time coming but the wait is finally over, pkg (aka pkgng) version 1.0 has just been released!
You can find pkg in the ports ‘/usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg’ or if you are running HEAD you will find it in the base system. Baptiste Daroussin made the announcement to the lists today, see http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2012-August/077909.html.
