fink-0.36.5 and fink-0.37.0 released. End of official support for 10.6.

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-0.36.1 released.

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.
