The OpenPKG project releases version 2.2 of the unique cross-platform software packaging facility.

The OpenPKG project released version 2.2 of their unique RPM-based cross-platform Unix software packaging facility. OpenPKG 2.2 consists of 528 selected (from a pool of 800) packages which include latest versions of popular Unix software like Apache, Bash, BIND, GCC, INN, Mozilla, MySQL, OpenSSH, Perl, Postfix, PostgreSQL, Samba, Squid, teTeX and Vim -- all carefully packaged for easy deployment on 18 different Unix platforms, including FreeBSD 4.10/5.3, Debian GNU/Linux 3.0/3.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, Fedora Core 2, SuSE Linux 9.0/9.1, and Sun Solaris 2.6/8/9/10. The major technical efforts for this release were spent on reducing the requirements on the underlying Unix platforms and further improving the portability of our packages. Additionally, we ensured that a smooth upgrade path exists from OpenPKG 2.1.
