Default Official FreeBSD Binary Packages now available for pkgng

From http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...er/000107.html :

Quote:
We are pleased to announce that official binary packages are now
available for pkg, the next generation package management tool for FreeBSD.

Pkg allows you to either use ports with portmaster/portupgrade or to
have binary remote packages without ports.

We have binary packages available for i386 and amd64 on
8.3,8.4,9.1,9.2,10.0 and 11 (head).

Pkg will be the default starting in FreeBSD 10.

The pkg_install suite of tools pkg_create(1), pkg_add(1), and
pkg_info(1) (which ports also use), are deprecated and will be
discontinued in roughly 6 months. A communication regarding the
deprecation of the pkg_install suite of tools will be sent separately in
the future.
