New Ports of the Week #27 (July 1)

Contributed by merdely on from the buzzword-compliancy dept.

This week brought us 10 new ports. That brings us to 4483 total ports.

A note about the article title: #27 doesn't correspond to the number of "New Ports of the Week" articles; it refers to the week of the year. The day (July 1) refers to the Sunday (the first day) of the week in question.

New Ports for July 1 to July 7:
devel/luaevent, games/vodovod, print/libpaper, productivity/vym, security/wpa_supplicant, textproc/highlight, textproc/py-pygments, textproc/yould, www/vtigercrm, x11/xfce4/thunar-media-tags

Ports are listed in the order they were committed to the tree:

  • security/wpa_supplicant
    • wpa_suppblicant a fully-featured implementation of an IEEE 802.1X supplicant. This port does not support the wireless WPA/WPA functionality yet, because it is missing in the OpenBSD net80211 kernel implementation. Successfully tested with 802.1X on ProCurve switches with OpenBSD running freeradius in the backend.
      From Reyk: This port is based on work by Jussi Salzwedel, thanks!
  • textproc/py-pygments
    • Pygments is a generic syntax highlighter for general use in all kinds of software such as forum systems, wikis or other applications that need to prettify source code. Highlights are:
      • a wide range of common languages and markup formats is supported
      • special attention is paid to details that increase highlighting quality
      • support for new languages and formats are added easily; most languages use a simple regex-based lexing mechanism
      • a number of output formats is available, among them HTML, RTF, LaTeX and ANSI sequences
      • it is usable as a command-line tool and as a library
      • ... and it highlights even Brainf*ck!
  • devel/luaevent
    • LuaEvent is an lue binding of libevent.
  • www/vtigercrm
    • vtiger CRM is an enterprise-ready open source CRM software mainly for small and medium businesses. vtiger CRM is built over proven, fast, and reliable technologies and open source projects. vtiger CRM leverages the benefits of open source software and adds more value to the end-users by providing many enterprise features, such as sales force automation , customer support & service , marketing automation, inventory management, multiple database support, security management, product customization, calendaring, e-mail integration, add-ons, and others. vtiger CRM also provides, enterprise grade business productivity enhancement add-ons, customer portal , Outlook plug-in for Microsoft Outlook users, Office plug-in for Microsoft Word users, and Thunderbird extension for Thunderbird mail users.

  • print/libpaper
    • The paper library and accompanying files are intended to provide a simple way for applications to take actions based on a system- or user-specified paper size.
  • x11/xfce4/thunar-media-tags
    • The Thunar Media Tags Plugin adds special features for media files to the Thunar File Manager.
      Currently, these are:
      • a so-called bulk renamer, which allows users to rename multiple audio files at once, based on their tags (e.g. ID3 or OGG/Vorbis),
      • a special media file page for the file properties dialog, which displays detailed information about quality, length etc.,
      • and finally, an audio tag editor which is reachable from both, renamer and the properties page.
  • textproc/yould
    • Yould is a generator for pronounceable random words. The engine uses Markov chains with two letter transitions. This distribution includes trained engines for several languages: English, Dutch, Finnish, Italian, French and German.
  • textproc/highlight
    • Highlight converts sourcecode to HTML, XHTML, RTF, LaTeX, TeX and XML files with syntax highlighting. Its language definitions, colour themes and indentation schemes are customizable.
  • games/vodovod
    • The goal of Vodovod is to reach the highest possible score. You get a limited number of pipes on each level and need to combine them to lead the water from the house at the top of the screen to the storage tank at the bottom.
  • productivity/vym
    • VYM (View Your Mind) is a tool to generate and manipulate maps which show your thoughts. Such maps can help you to improve your creativity and effectivity. You can use them for time management, to organize tasks, to get an overview over complex contexts, to sort your ideas etc.
      Maps can be drawn by hand on paper or a flip chart and help to structure your thoughs. While a tree like structure can be drawn by hand or any drawing software vym offers much more features to work with such maps. vym is not another drawing software, but a tool to store and modify information in an intuitive way. For example you can reorder parts of the map by pressing a key or add various information like a complete email by a simple mouse click.

Porting applications is a lot of work and brings more and more functionality to our favorite OS, so keep up the great work.
