Don’t forget to update your software every once in a while. If your like me, then I’m sure your system if filled with out of date software.

Today while trying to get Github to update my code (constant network errors) I thought I would try updating Homebrew. Opps! Looks like I have been neglecting it for far to long.

Do this to make sure Homebrew package definitions is current.

brew update

Once you have gotten the latest definitions do the following to get your software upgraded.

brew upgrade <package name>

Major ones for me are

brew upgrade git
brew upgrade bash
brew upgrade tmux
brew upgrade ctags
brew upgrade tree
brew upgrade postgresql
brew upgrade openssh
