More updates coming

I want everyone to know that, despite my frequent ruminations about Apple essentially forcing developers to migrate to their privileged Cocoa frameworks, I haven't been neglecting my products. Today I released a new version of PortAuthority, and major and/or minor updates of all of my other products are also in the works.

For my products, updates tend to fall into two categories: application-specific improvements; and infrastructure improvements that can be added to each of my programs. This means that I often release updates in clusters, because they reflect improvements in frameworks and extensions that I use across my applications.

PortAuthority 2.6

PortAuthority 2.6, my GUI for the MacPorts Unix software management system, is now out.

It's been seven months since the last release. PortAuthority is fairly mature and bug-free as a product, so there is less need to update it frequently. However, the new release contains some useful new features, including a faster display of all MacPorts packages; Growl support; and various UI improvements to give the user greater control of application windows, product updates, and display of their serial number.

2.6 is a free update to registered users. If you use PortAuthority, you'll want to install the new version.
