Port updates different release time with 10.1 and 10.2


I am using both FreeBSD 10.1 and 10.2 and notice that port updates are not being released at the same time with both versions. For example; I updated from MATE 1.10 to 1.12 about a week ago, but the 1.12 version of MATE does not show with pkg upgrade on FreeBSD 10.2 yet.

Could anyone please explain why it is so?

The default pkg(8) repository set in /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf now defaults to the quarterly package set. To use the latest branch (as was the previous default), the comment at the top of /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf explains how to disable the default repository and specify an alternative repository.
