BSD and Darwin derivatives MidnightBSD 0.4-RELEASE hit FTP servers today and the new version includes a custom package management tool, "mport", that was developed with sqlite3 and libarchive. The packing list and all metadata is stored in SQL and a tool is provided to query the package database directly. This allows scripts and third party tools to easily integrate with the package system.

Where are these times when all such news were welcomed on OSNews with much more enthusiasm than revelations about new Microsoft Windows or Xbox today?

Neither I’m ironic nor nostalgic, but… The time has changed for open source enthusiasts. Alternative operating systems and software are now taken over and capitalized by big companies. No one is afraid about GNU GPL license anymore, as all these lawyers have learnt how to make money out of free licenses. Good bye free software? No, I don’t think, so.
