Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2013-01-13
    Affects: users of security/openvpn*
      security/openvpn has been upgraded to the IPv6-capable v2.3.0.
      This upgrade moves easy-rsa into a separate package in
      security/easy-rsa that is pre-selected as default run-time dependency,
      and changes installed file layout a bit.
      security/openvpn22 retains the prior OpenVPN 2.2.2 version.
      If you want to continue using this version, use one of these commands:
      # portmaster -o security/openvpn22 security/openvpn
      # portupgrade -o security/openvpn22 security/openvpn
      # pkg set -o security/openvpn:security/openvpn22
      security/openvpn20 has been marked deprecated and to be removed
      in half a year's time.  Please migrate to a newer version soonish.
  • 2010-01-07
    Affects: users of security/openvpn*
      security/openvpn has been moved to security/openvpn20 and upgraded to 2.0.9.
      security/openvpn has been upgraded to 2.1.1, and security/openvpn-devel has
      been removed.
      Regular upgrades of the security/openvpn port should succeed without
      manual intervention, but if you want to stick to openvpn 2.0 or if you
      had been using openvpn-devel, manual intervention is needed, as
      If you'd been using the security/openvpn-devel port, please use one of
      these commands for upgrading:
        portmaster -m-DDISABLE_CONFLICTS -o security/openvpn security/openvpn-devel
        portupgrade -m-DDISABLE_CONFLICTS -o security/openvpn security/openvpn-devel
      If you want to stick to openvpn 2.0, please use one of these two
      upgrade commands:
        portmaster -m-DDISABLE_CONFLICTS -o security/openvpn20 security/openvpn
        portupgrade -m-DDISABLE_CONFLICTS -o security/openvpn20 security/openvpn
