GNU-Darwin: Dynamic library support
This should not affect package users, but if you are a project maintainer, then this will tell you how to build dynamic with the ports system.

GNU-Darwin and TDC merge
In preparation for WWDC 2002, the Apple Design Awards, and the upcoming Beta 2 release,
TDC-current has been merged with GNU-Darwin on-line. This includes all of the packages from
TDC Issue 1, plus updates. Notable examples include openldap, cyrus-sasl, and a full ruby
implementation. (pkg_add -r ruby)
For GNU-Darwin-ppc users, this means that there are 1500 additional packages in our
auto-remote directory, with about 300 more unique titles. Together these two collections will
improve auto-dependency checking considerably. Notably, the additional packages were built
using Mac OS X on the the TDC porting machine, instead of GNU-Darwin-only packaging robots.
Based on current trends, we will have 3000 unique titles on-line in the very near future.
If you would like to see a much improved TDC Issue 2 in DVD release, please go purchase TDC 1.
If you appreciate what GNU-Darwin is doing, please contribute. Many thanks to those who have
already done this. Such champions understand what is required to sustain free software
Free software rules!
