print/poppler, a modern PDF viewer

Contributed by mbalmer on from the popple-di-pop-for-evince-di-vinc dept.

print/poppler has been imported to our ports tree:

Poppler is a fork of the xpdf PDF viewer developed by Derek Noonburg of Glyph and Cog, LLC. It provides PDF rendering functionality as a shared library, and uses modern components from Freedesktop.org such as fontconfig and cairo to take advantage of modern UNIX desktops.

This is a shared library only, no tools available, but it is used by evince.

See http://poppler.freedesktop.org/ for more details on poppler.

    Like I pointed out in the last "here's another port" post (which was mysteriously deleted), this stuff isn't needed. Since when was undeadly's goal to post about every new port mbalmer thinks is interesting? We can all read port-changes ourselves if we want to see what ports have been committed.

      Agreed.

      However, a short list of major/popular port additions before the next release would be nice.

      Since when is it your job to edit undeadly's content? As a fellow Anonymous Coward I don't remember having a chance to vote on whether or not new ports are announced.

        Since when are the people who come to the site not supposed to point out when the site needs improved? Lots of improvements have come from people pointing things out here in the comments to stories. Believe it or not, the point of soliciting comments is to get comments. Telling people not to post comments just because you don't agree with them is dumb.

      next time you make a contribution to openbsd i'm sure undeadly will
      cover it.

        That's the problem. I'd rather not see undeadly filled with useless "look here's another port" posts. Regardless of who made the port, myself included.

      So don't read the articles. I like the new port articles, it lets me know about new ports without needing to wade through port-changes.

      I like port posts. Should I felt like I don't want them, I'd just skip the red brick and I'm done.

        I like port posts too. Just felt like saying it since a lot of comments are negative. Please keep more of this good stuff coming.

        Which port posts? Should we have a post every time anyone ports anything? Or just what marc finds personally interesting?
