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.

...never heard of MidnightBSD. About 6.5 years ago I ran BSD for 6 months as my work machine, before we changed our VPN system. I really enjoyed it, I even came to really appreciate KDE.

Now Windows is required for work...

Talking about package manager, it's a downgrade.
