New Management

As of 14 October, 2008, MacPorts has undergone a change of management.  The email announcement can be found at:

http://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail/macports-users/2008-October/011899.html

The first order of business (once getting settled in is complete) is to put the final wraps on a 1.7.0 release and have a beta1 version out soon.  This will be a big release, as it has been quite some time since 1.6.0. There is a milestone for 1.7.0 tickets on Trac:

http://trac.macports.org/milestone/MacPorts%201.7.0

However, many other changes have been made without tickets, and the entire set of updates is in the ChangeLog:

http://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/base/ChangeLog

It is quite a list since 1.6.0.

New team members

It’s been long since we last publicly announced new team members, and as a result some of them have gone without their deserved welcoming posts, sorry ’bout that.  It’s been so long that I couldn’t possibly remember which ones were the last publicly announced ones, so rather than sifting through our list of members and older blog posts I’ll just post the entire list itself:

http://trac.macports.org/wiki/MacPortsDevelopers

Feel like you want to be in it…? Great, we’re always looking for more helping hands! Shape up and browse over to http://www.macports.org/contact.php#PortMgr

New website and guide

The MacPorts team is most proud to present to the world its new face at http://www.macports.org, after a couple of months long redesign of the old website we had at OpenDarwin servers and which now replaces the default Wordpress portal we were using since our migration to Mac OS Forge.

Coupled to our new webpage is a considerable and on-going facelift to our until unfortunately lacking documentation, our new guide at http://guide.macports.org, mostly the work of our own Mark Duling, Boey Maun Suang and Simon Ruderich.

Enjoy them and feel free to give us as much feedback as you may have by following the guidelines in the brand new www.macports.org/contact.php page.

Kudos to all those who helped make these important milestone happen, keep it up!

MacPorts 1.6.0

The MacPorts team is most glad to announce the immediate availability of our amazing 1.6.0 release, full with revamped website and guide too! Check out the release announcement at http://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail/macports-announce/2007-December/000000.html for more details.

Thanks to all those who helped put all these goodies together, keep up the amazing work!

MacPorts published in German magazine c’t

The MacPorts Team is pleased to see MacPorts being published by German computer magazine c’t. Edition 24/2007 features a CD with system tools that includes MacPorts version 1.5 and a short description of MacPorts inside the magazine.

MacPorts v1.5 released

The MacPorts team is pleased to announce the release of MacPorts v1.5.

A major achievement in this release is the completion of code and documentation changes to reflect the transition in project name from DarwinPorts to MacPorts. This results in a slightly modified installation layout.

In addition to that, there are a sizable number of bug fixes and feature enhancements.

Please see the release notes for more details.

Mac OS X v10.3 and 10.4 downloads are available.

MacPorts v1.4.0 released

The MacPorts project is pleased to announce the release of MacPorts v1.4.0.

Change log is at MacPorts 1.4.0 ChangeLog.
Downloads are available at MacPorts 1.4.0 downloads.

Thanks to all project members who contributed to this release, and especially to Juan Manuel Palacios, who served as release manager. Bugs may be filed at the MacPorts bug reports page.

We plan to release a v1.4.1 within weeks with some ongoing enhancements. Please note that our official plan is to build disk images only for 1.x.0 releases, and let subsequent point releases selfupdate from there. Note also that if you have a previous release of MacPorts installed, the easiest path to MacPorts 1.4.0 is simply “sudo port selfupdate”.

MacPorts accepted into Google Summer of Code 2007

We’re very pleased to announce that MacPorts has been selected by Google as an organizational member of Google Summer of Code 2007. This means that students may apply to work on MacPorts projects through the Summer of Code program sponsored by google. Compensation for completion of a project is $4500 to the student, and $500 to MacPorts.

The members of the MacPorts portmgr team and community are excited by this opportunity to improve MacPorts while also welcoming new contributors to the MacPorts ecosystem.

For more information, please see the MacPorts tracking page for summer of code.

We encourage qualified and interested students to apply!

MacPorts applies for Google Summer of Code

MacPorts today filed an application with Google for Summer of Code 2007. Summer of Code is a google-sponsored program under which students work over the summer on an open source project, gaining valuable experience while also contributing important effort to open source projects.

We’ll know by March 14 whether our application has been accepted. We’ve set up a tracking page at SummerOfCode with more information and a list of potential tasks.

Please join us in sending good vibes to google to get our application approved so that we can help students learn while enhancing MacPorts.

Developers’ Locations

We now have a Google Map (again) with the locations of our developers. Developers that are not yet registered on the map yet may mail to mww or - if they have commit bit - add their location themselves to the xml-marker file.

Special Maintainer Addresses migrated to new form

MacPorts has long used the maintainer address darwinports@opendarwin.org to signify that a port did not have an active maintainer. We have changed this protocol to use two new addresses (nomaintainer@macports.org and openmaintainer@macports.org). These addresses autorespond with a message referring the reader to http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/SpecialMaintainerAddresses for more information.
