Dear users,

I have now finally assembled a new and complete rebuild of the
Berkeley DB libraries. In the new schema every version of BDB
is sitting in a separate subdirectory, that means
Berkeley DB X.Y.Z is located at /opt/csw/bdbXY/(bin|lib|...)
The repackaged versions contain 3.3, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.7 and 4.8.
If necessary the legacy packages needed as dependencies have
been replaced by stubs containing minimal links to the new
locations with a respective dependency in the package.

The following packages have been updated:

berkeleydb      	CSWbdb
berkeleydb3     	CSWbdb3
berkeleydb3_devel     	CSWbdb3devel
berkeleydb3_doc     	CSWbdb3doc
berkeleydb4     	CSWbdb4
berkeleydb42    	CSWbdb42
berkeleydb42_devel      CSWbdb42devel
berkeleydb42_doc        CSWbdb42doc
berkeleydb43    	CSWbdb43
berkeleydb43_devel      CSWbdb43-devel
berkeleydb43_doc        CSWbdb43-doc
berkeleydb44    	CSWbdb44
berkeleydb44_devel      CSWbdb44-devel
berkeleydb44_doc        CSWbdb44-doc
berkeleydb47    	CSWbdb47
berkeleydb47_devel      CSWbdb47devel
berkeleydb47_doc        CSWbdb47doc
berkeleydb48    	CSWbdb48
berkeleydb48_devel      CSWbdb48devel
berkeleydb48_doc        CSWbdb48doc

The following packages are deprecated:

- CSWbdb was newly introduced during the unification. It contains now
   only symlinks pointing inside CSWbdb47. The package will go away
   when all dependant packages habe been recompiled against CSWbdb47.
- CSWbdb4 contained the original Berkeley DB 4.2 in /opt/csw/bdb4.
   The package now contains

The following packages do not exist any more as the base packages are

- berkeleydb_doc	CSWbdbdoc
- berkeleydb_devel	CSWbdbdevel
- berkeleydb4_doc	CSWbdb4-doc

The following package names have been kept to match the existing naming.
The package names will be adjusted at a later date with proper  

- berkeleydb43_devel	CSWbdb43-devel
- berkeleydb43_doc	CSWbdb43-doc
- berkeleydb44_devel	CSWbdb44-devel
- berkeleydb44_doc	CSWbdb44-doc

Should you encounter any issues please post to users@ as usual.

Best regards
