An avid software developer has released Phynchronicity 2.0, a graphical user interface (GUI) for the Fink Unix software management system. The application is designed to make Fink easy to use without overwhelming users with options, providing a simple three-pane interface for finding, installing, and removing software packages. The update allows users to configure settings without popping up a registration screen, enables correct scrolling in the Tree widget, and lists changes made from software updates. The latest release also adds a "Contact Code by Kevin" function to improve user support, and brings the latest versions of Tcl/Tk (8.4.16) with numerous updates and bug fixes. All tree and table items return data with a single click, searching as well as sorting information is much faster, and users stay in the same table view when installing a package. Phynchronicity 2.0 is priced at $20, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
