Code by Kevin has released Phynchronicity 1.0, a graphical user interface (GUI) for the Fink Unix-software package management system on Mac OS X. Fink is a command-line tool for installing and updating thousands of Unix-based applications for the Mac, and Phynchronicity provides a simple three-pane interface that makes Fink easy to use. The graphical front-end covers all of the basic Fink commands, including installing, deleting, and retrieving information about Unix software packages. Phynchronicity also updates the Fink infrastructure itself, and allows users to browse available software by category. Phynchronicity is priced at $20, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
