    fink-0.37.0 and fink-0.37.0 were released on 4 June, 2014. These fink releases contain fixes for Java detection on 10.6 if older versions of Apple's Java SDK are installed. fink-0.37.0 officially recognizes OS 10.9.3. In addition, Fink's compiler wrappers are now installed directly by the fink package to make for easier modifications.

    fink-0.36.5 marks the end of 10.6 support by the Fink Project. Users who want package updates should contact the maintainers of the respective packages. Unmaintained packages can be updated by request as well.

    fink-0.36.4 was released on 6 April, 2014. This fink release restores the use of an official binary distribution by default on 10.8 and 10.9 (if distributions are created for 10.6 and 10.7 those will be supported, too). In addition, it works around the multiple build failures introduced by Xcode 5.1 on 10.8 and 10.9. This release also includes official support for OS X 10.9.2, fixes the bootstrap operation when isn't present, and makes x86_64 the default architecture for 10.6 bootstraps.

    Users are encouraged to run fink selfupdate to install this version of fink, particularly in view of the Xcode 5.1 build issues.

    We've been having issues with the master rsync server, which haven't been resolved as of yet. Unfortunately, this affects all but two of the other servers. To work around this problem, edit /sw/etc/fink.conf as an administrator and change your Mirror-rsync setting to one of

    rsync:// rsync://

    or use fink selfupdate-cvs to switch your update method.

    fink- was released on 30 December, 2013. This release includes official support for OS X 10.9.1, and fixes an issue in which the fink couldn't directly access official or unofficial binary distributions on 64-bit platforms. It also fixes an issue with 32-bit platforms which was introduced in fink-0.36.3.

    fink-0.36.1 was released on 17 November, 2013. This release fixes an intermittent bug in building Perl modules which was introduced with fink-0.36.0. We encourage our users to install fink-0.36.1 to rectify this issue, and if you are having problems with installing a Perl module, use fink rebuild on it.

    In addition, the bootstrap script now validates whether the Mavericks command-line build tools are installed on that OS version, and prevents folks from bootstrapping with the wrong tools.
