MidCOM PEAR channel upgraded

The MidCOM PEAR channel has now been upgraded to the Chiara_PEAR_Server version of PEAR channel serving. The upgrade went mostly painlessly following Greg Beaver’s instructions.

The main change with the upgrade is that now the server uses PEAR’s REST API which should make things faster and more stable. It also means that you need to upgrade the package definition on any server where you want to install MidCOM packages:

# pear channel-update pear.midcom-project.org

The other change is that we now have a nice web frontend for browsing packages powered by the Crtx_PEAR_Channel_Frontend.

Please report if you encounter any issues after this upgrade.

Updated 18:05Z: Planet Midgard is now subscribed to the PEAR channel releases feed.
