Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce that the pkgsrc-2018Q1 binary package sets for
illumos are now available.  As always you can install pkgsrc using the
instructions here:

  https://pkgsrc.joyent.com/install-on-illumos/

Of note for illumos users in this release are new packages for
Clang/LLVM 6.0.0rc3.  This compiler suite has been patched to
successfully build over 17,000 packages with pkgsrc, and should be
suitable for general use.

SmartOS users should use the new 18.1.0 images via imgadm(1M) due to
be released shortly.
