Port Authority 1.0 ships

Kevin Walzer has released Port Authority 1.0, an open-source application that provides a graphical user interface for the DarwinPorts package management system for Mac OS X. DarwinPorts is a powerful command-line tool for installing and updating a variety of Unix-based applications for the Mac. Port Authority is designed to bring the power of DarwinPorts to the traditional Mac user by providing a user-friendly graphical interface to the DarwinPorts system. Version 1.0 of Port Authority, under development for two years, is a Universal Binary and runs under the Mac's Aqua environment and its Unix-based X11 environment. The Aqua version costs $6.25, while the X11 version is freely available.
