Web Stack 1.5: Now Fully Relocatable and Updatable Via pkg(5) and the Update Center Toolkit
By Chris Kasso-Oracle on Aug 10, 2009
The release of Web Stack 1.5 was recently announced. One of the unique features of the 1.5 release is support for pkg(5) and the Update Center Toolkit.
As Jeff Trawick demonstrates in his blog installing Web Stack components such as Apache is greatly simplified using the tools provided by the Update Center Toolkit. The Update Center will also provide desktop notification to users when updates to the installed Web Stack components become available as well as provide a straightforward method to update those components via the Software Update tool.
If you are a new or existing Web Stack user now is a great time to try out the new pkg(5) based version of the product.
