+
+ The CPU microcode ports have been reorganized. The new ports are:
+ sysutils/cpu-microcode, sysutils/cpu-microcode-amd,
+ sysutils/cpu-microcode-intel, and cpu-microcode-rc.
+
+ To install all CPU microcode packages:
+
+ pkg install cpu-microcode
+
+ To install only packages for a specific CPU vendor:
+
+ pkg install cpu-microcode-amd
+
+ or
+
+ pkg install cpu-microcode-intel
+
+ To give users time to adjust to these changes, sysutils/devcpu-data will
+ remain in the tree until the end of 2023. The port has been converted to a
+ metaport and now provides the same functionality as sysutils/cpu-microcode.
+
+ Refer to the commit log in bc7829212d153aeff69b439d08e2e3001ef88ba3 for an
+ explanation as to why these changes were made.
