Hello everyone,

You probably have noticed, that the testing / dublin / current catalog
has not been receiving updates for some time now. All the work and
churn has been confined to the unstable catalog, saving you hassle
with the constant stream of updates. However, since the works are
progressing at the normal pace, the testing / dublin / current catalog
(Solaris 9 and up) will soon get a large, accumulated update.

The update migrates all updated packages from the unstable catalog to
testing / dublin. If you want additional safety during the upgrade,
you can temporarily switch one of your machines to the unstable
catalog and run pkgutil -y -u. If everything goes well, you can update
the other machines using the dublin catalog. To learn more about the
unstable and testing catalogs, you can read this news item:

We expect upgrades to go smoothly, but in case of any problems, don't
hesitate to contact us: either here, or at #opencsw on Freenode.
