Update Center Toolkit 2.3 Build 34 Available

The Update Center 2 development team is pleased to announce the availability of build 34 (download) of the Update Center Toolkit. This is the fourth development build for the 2.3 release that is targeted for delivery later this year.  This build resolves 18 issues and contains 2 enhancements beyond the previous build.  

This build does not yet include the new pkg(5) drop nor support for AIX. These have been delayed due to difficulties in development of these features, especially with Windows support for the pycurl library that is needed for the new pkg(5) drop and in creating a working build environment for AIX.

Comments:

what is the new "pkg(5) drop"? I did a quick search and could not find it.

"pkg(5) drop" refers to the copy of the pkg(5) source code associated with a specific build of OpenSolaris. In this case I believe it was build 118 of OpenSolaris.

The Update Center development project takes these source "drops" periodically to freshen the copy of pkg(5) that we port and bundle in the toolkit. As part of the development of each minor release of the toolkit, we strive to take the latest stable drop of the pkg(5) source.
