Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

Update to pkg 1.2.0 b1

- Bug fixes in zsh completion
- Lots of bug fixes discovered by Coverity Scan
- New debug level traces
- Auto upgrade of pkg(8) now restart the upgrade process automatically
- Dependencies on library is now automatic via pkg register and pkg
- YAML is replaced by UCL format:

  Both formats are really simular. pkg(8) will falls back on parsing YAML
  when the UCL parser fail. And will emit a warning to the
  user showing a syntax that is compatible with both YAML and UCL.
  More informations on UCL:

- Do not generate catalogs in pkg 1.0 format anymore.
- Working ssh protocol supported for repositories
- New PKG_SSH_ARGS to allow passing custom arguments to ssh command
  used for the ssh:// protocol
- Allow using '?' operator in pkg query expressions
- New git like aliases to allow creating custom commands
- REPO_DIR is now a list instead of a simple string
- packagesite in pkg.conf is deprecated in favour using dedicated
  repository configuration files
- New 'fingerprint' kind of signature:

    if a repository is declared using the fingerprint type of
    signature, a fingerprint directory should also be provided.
    Inside that fingerprint directory should be 2 directories:
    trusted and revoked.  Those directories will contains files (in
    yaml/ucl format) containing the fingerprint of the trusted
    certificated and the revoked ones:

    --- begins --
    function: sha256
    fingerprint: an_hex_representation_of_the_fingerprint
    --- ends ---

    All unknown attribute will be silently ignored to allow extending
    in the future.

    It also support multiple signatures inside the catalog. the
    catalog should provide the signature in the following form:

- pkg add is now able to read the packages from a pipe or a non-regular
  file '-' is an alias for stdin, this also works from pipes, fifos,
  unix domain sockets etc.
- Support for pkg+foo url scheme where foo can be (http, https, ftp).
- pkg info now default on glob matching
- Print a pkg name only once - even if multiple vulns were found -
  when using -q
- Accept empty/comment only configuration files
- vuxml is now the default source for pkg audir
- expat is now bundled (for vuxml)
- pkg info -q is now equivalent of pkg info -qa
- in case pkg info is querying a file or is a single direct match
  query then default on -f
- pkg repo can now take new arguments:
  pkg repo [path] [rsa_key|'signing_command: <command>']

  This allow calling external command to perform the signing and
  pass the checksum to be signed in the command stdin.
- options can now have a description
- new pkg config subcommand to allow direct query of options
- ABI is now checked again using globs:
  a 'noarch' package should just specify: ARCH: 'freebsd:*'
  a package working on both i386 and amd64: ARCH: 'freebsd:9:x86:*'
- Broken incremental pkg repo support was removed.
- Lots of spelling/grammar fixes
- Properly support srv priority/weigh when ordering mirrors
- Use port specified in the SRV entries to connect to a given mirror
- New pkg bootstrap subcommand that is the counter part of the
  pkg(7) bootstrap subcommand
- Allow ARCH to be printed by pkg info
- Allow to hook plugins, before closing the local db if it was
  opened in RW mode
- Improved build system
