    fink-0.38.6 was released on 13 June, 2015. This release fixes an issue which prevented bootstrapping on Yosemite (or later) using Xcode newer than 6.2 .

    dpkg-base-files-0.4 was also released on 13 June, 2015. This update mitigates an issue in which packages with app bundles couldn't be updated on Yosemite:

    unable to make backup link of 
    before installing new version: 
    Operation not permitted

    Users are encouraged to run fink selfupdate and install these new versions.

    If you are interested in helping us with the migration to 10.11, a current released fink won't do the job. A branch has been set up on fink's github site for this.

    Please note that right now we are in an alpha stage and you might need to wipe your Fink distribution out a as stuff gets changed around.

    fink-0.38.5 was released on 14 May, 2015. This release enables official OS X 10.10.3 support, and reverts a change made in fink-0.38.4 to restore the requirement that the /usr/X11R6 convenience symlink be present for the x11* virtual packages to be active.

    It also downgrades building libraries with flat namespace from a fatal validation error to a warning, since some packages require such a build. There are a number of additional validation enhancements as well. Check the commit logs on fink's github site for additional information.

    fink-0.38.3 was released on 29 November, 2014. This release enables the official 10.10 binary distribution by default, along with official OS X 10.10.1 support and other fixes and enhancements.

    fink-0.38.0 was released on 18 October, 2014. The Fink Project announces official support for Yosemite (OS X 10.10) with the release of fink-0.38.0.

    10.9 users who want to upgrade their Fink installations in place from 10.9 to 10.10 may do so. To do so, you must install fink-0.38.0 (or later) on 10.9 before updating to 10.10. We don't support upgrading Fink on 10.8 or earlier to 10.10.
