New Ports of the Week #45 (November 4)

Contributed by merdely on from the flurry-of-gnomes dept.

While not a new set of ports, you may have noticed the 39 commits (here & here to cite two) on Saturday (the 10th) by jasper@ to update Gnome to 2.20.1.

There are 8 new ports for November 4 to November 10:
devel/p5-Data-Dumper-Simple, devel/ruby-fastthread, graphics/molden, mail/ruby-rmail, textproc/p5-PDF-Table, textproc/ruby-icalendar, x11/gnome/alacarte, x11/transset-df

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

  • mail/ruby-rmail
    • RubyMail is a lightweight Ruby library for parsing and creating Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (MIME) messages.
  • devel/ruby-fastthread
    • fastthread is an optimized replacement for the default thread.rb found in the Ruby stdlib.
  • x11/transset-df
    • transset-df is a heavily patched version of xorg's transset. It is used to set the transparency of windows in X with the xcomposite extension. It adds several command line options to make it easier to use directly, bound to hot keys in your window manager, or through scripts. These include the ability to select a window by window ID.
  • textproc/ruby-icalendar
  • textproc/p5-PDF-Table
  • devel/p5-Data-Dumper-Simple
    • Data::Dumper::Simple is actually a source filter that replaces all instances of Dumper($some, @args) in your code with a call to Data::Dumper->Dump(). You can use the one function provided to make dumping variables for debugging a trivial task.
  • graphics/molden
    • Molden: a MOLecular DENsity visualizer. It is is a package for displaying Molecular Density from the Ab Initio packages GAMESS-UK, GAMESS-US and GAUSSIAN and the Semi-Empirical packages Mopac/Ampac, it also supports a number of other programs via the Molden Format. Molden reads all the required information from the GAMESS / GAUSSIAN outputfile. Molden is capable of displaying Molecular Orbitals, the electron density and the Molecular minus Atomic density. Either the spherically averaged atomic density or the oriented ground state atomic density can be subtracted for a number of standard basis sets. Molden supports contour plots, 3-d grid plots with hidden lines and a combination of both. It can write a variety of graphics instructions; postscript, XWindows, VRML, povray, OpenGL, tekronix4014, hpgl, hp2392 and Figure. The Xwindows version of Molden is also capable of importing and displaying of chemx, PDB, and a variety of mopac/ampac files and lots of other formats. It also can animate reaction paths and molecular vibrations. It can calculate and display the true or Multipole Derived Electrostatic Potential and atomic charges can be fitted to the Electrostatic Potential calculated on a Connolly surface. Molden also features an stand alone forcefield program ambfor, which can optimise geometries with the combined Amber (protein) and GAFF (small molecules) force fields. Atom typing can be done automatically and interactively from within Molden, as well as firing optimisation jobs. Molden has a powerful Z-matrix editor which give full control over the geometry and allows you to build molecules from scratch, including polypeptides. Molden was also submitted to the QCPE (QCPE619), allthough the Xwindows version is considerably running behind on the current one.
  • x11/gnome/alacarte
    • Alacarte is an easy-to-use menu editor for GNOME that can add and edit new entries and menus. It works with the menu specification and should work with any desktop environment that uses the spec.
