New Ports of the Week #44 (October 28)

Contributed by merdely on from the home-again dept.

Back from p2k7, we settle into a more normal "new port" pace.

There are 14 new ports for October 28 to November 3:
archivers/libarchive, devel/p5-Slay-Makefile, devel/p5-Slay-Makefile-Gress, devel/p5-Slay-Maker, mail/claws-mail-notification, mail/p5-Mail-DKIM, print/hplip, textproc/p5-Text-ASCIIMathML, textproc/p5-Text-Markdown, textproc/p5-Text-Restructured, www/myreview, www/wordpress-mu, x11/krusader, x11/roxterm

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

  • www/wordpress-mu
    • WordPress calls itself "a state-of-the-art, semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, Web standards, and usability." It is a web-based blogging package based on PHP and MySQL.
      WordPress MU is a multi-user version of WordPress that allows for running hundreds of thousands of blogs with a single install of WordPress.
  • archivers/libarchive
    • Libarchive is a programming library that can create and read several different streaming archive formats, including most popular tar variants and several cpio formats.

      bsdtar is an almost fully GNU tar-compatible frontend for libarchive. It is one of the fastest tar implementations and supports many advanced features not found elsewhere.
  • mail/claws-mail-notification
    • claws-mail-notification is a notification plugin for the MUA claws-mail. It can notify of new mails with a popup-window, execution of an user-set command or a stocks ticker-like banner.
  • x11/roxterm
    • ROXTerm is a terminal emulator intended to provide similar features to gnome-terminal, based on the same VTE library, but with a smaller footprint and quicker start-up time.
  • www/myreview
    • MyReview is an open-source web application for managing the paper submission and paper review phases. It aims at providing the most complete, powerful and flexible software of its kind.
      It provides the following functionalities:
      • paper submission
      • assignment of papers to reviewers
      • review submission
      • discussion on conflicting reviews
      • paper selection
      • preparation of the conference
  • textproc/p5-Text-Markdown
    • Text::Markdown is a text-to-HTML filter; it translates an easy-to-read/easy-to-write structured text format into HTML. Markdown's text format is most similar to that of plain text email, and supports features such as headers, *emphasis*, code blocks, blockquotes, and links.
  • x11/krusader
    • Krusader is an advanced twin panel (commander style) file manager for KDE similar to Midnight or Total Commander.
      It provides all the file management features you could possibly want: extensive archive handling, mounted filesystem support, FTP, advanced search module, an internal viewer/editor, directory synchronization, file content comparisons, powerful batch renaming and much much more. It supports a wide variety of archive formats and can handle other KIO slaves such as smb or fish. It is (almost) completely customizable, very user friendly and fast.
  • devel/p5-Slay-Maker
    • Slay::Maker is a make engine that uses perl declaration syntax for rules, including regular expressions for targets and anonymous subs for targets, dependencies, and actions.

      This allows you to tightly integrate a make engine in an application and to exercise a large amount of control over the make process, taking full advantage of Perl code at any point in the make cycle.
  • devel/p5-Slay-Makefile
    • Slay::Makefile wrapper allows for the rules to be contained within a SlayMakefile file whose syntax is similar to that of a normal Makefile.
  • devel/p5-Slay-Makefile-Gress
    • Slay::Makefile::Gress provides support for running a set of regression tests from a .t file by doing builds with a Slay::Makefile file.
  • textproc/p5-Text-ASCIIMathML
    • Text::ASCIIMathML is a parser for ASCIIMathML text which produces MathML XML markup strings that are suitable for rendering by any MathML-compliant browser.
  • textproc/p5-Text-Restructured
  • print/hplip
    • The print/hplip port contains 3 subpackages:
      • hplip:
        HPLIP is an HP developed solution for printing, scanning, and faxing with HP inkjet and laser based printers in Unix. The HPLIP project provides printing support for 1,248 printer models, including Deskjet, Officejet, Photosmart, PSC (Print Scan Copy), Business Inkjet, LaserJet, Edgeline MFP, and LaserJet MFP.
      • hpijs (supersede print/hpijs)
        The Hewlett-Packard Co. Linux Inkjet Driver Project is an add-on to the GNU Ghostscript application. This driver is based on the Hewlett Packard Appliance APDK for deskjet printers.
      • hplip-docs
        Documentation for HPLIP in HTML format.
  • mail/p5-Mail-DKIM
    • Mail::DKIM implements the various components of the DKIM and DomainKeys message-signing and verifying standards for Internet mail. It currently tries to implement these Internet Drafts:
      • draft-ietf-dkim-base-10
      • draft-delany-domainkeys-base

        KDE programs do not require KDE, as in KWin the KDE window manager.

    Good deal.

    And it appears that djb is releasing qmail to the public domain, so there's an upcoming port, I'd bet.

      Wow. So ports can be created for the small few insane people who actually like qmail.

      You mean, he put an actual blurb on it that *says* it is public domain ? Otherwise, if he still doesn't understand licensing, and waved hands, the status quo remains...
