FreeBSD Update in FreeBSD 6.2

I've been using Colin Percival's FreeBSD Update for about three years. Today Colin blogged that he expects FreeBSD Update to be included in FreeBSD 6.2, arriving in October or November. At that point you won't need to install the port. Great work Colin!

It's great to see FreeBSD embracing all these tools that people develop. It encoruages developers and improves FreeBSD as a whole.

The new 6.2-RELEASE version of freebsd-update does not seem to work through a web proxy. It just fails totally if it can't successfully do its own DNS lookup.
