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.
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.
