PortAuthority updates GUI for MacPorts UNIX tool

updated 01:40 pm EDT, Tue August 5, 2008

UNIX GUI updated

Code by Kevin has announced PortAuthority 2.6, an update to its graphical user-interface software for the MacPorts command-line tool for UNIX. MacPorts is an open-source community project that uses the Mac OS X command line, X-11 and Aqua software to bring UNIX to everyday users -- by providing a GUI for users seeking a simple interface over the command line complexity of MacPorts. Utilizing an approach featuring windows, menus and icons, PortAuthority works inside the MacPorts infrastructure, allowing users to update, install and search for specific MacPorts programs.

PortAuthority v2.6 adds faster display of MacPorts packages, a standard Mac 'window' menu to simplify the interface, Growl support, immediate updates to preferences and online user support. It also offers user-control over server connections and adds a new license menu that displays the user's serial number. The shareware costs $25, with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and a MacPorts installation required. It offers a 30-day free trial.
