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?

To be fair, there are a lot more options nowadays. I used to have a dream while in collage: try to find a job where I could work professionally with Free Software. To my good fortune I haven't done anything but work with Free Software.

None of these small projects are revolutionary, so to speak, but evolutionary. It's not a bad thing at all, of course, but maybe we saw then as revolutionary before, thus the bigger enthusiasm.

Go GNU, go BSD.
