New PBIs: SILC client, KPorts, Fio, Banshee, ATAidle

The following PBIs are now available through Software Manager:

SILC client: SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing) is a protocol which provides secure conferencing services in the Internet over an insecure channel. SILC is IRC like although internally they are very different. Biggest similarity between SILC and IRC is that they both provide conferencing services and that SILC has almost same commands as IRC. Other than that they are nothing alike.

KPorts: KPorts is a KDE-frontend to the FreeBSD Ports collection. You can browse and search through your ports tree and perform actions like upgrades, installs, and uninstalls.

Fio: Fio is an I/O testing tool that will spawn a number of threads or processes doing a particular type of I/O action as specified by the user. Fio can be driven by a ‘job file’ describing the I/O load one wants to simulate.

Banshee: Import, organize, play, and share your music using Banshee’s simple, powerful interface. Rip CDs, play and sync your iPod, create playlists, and burn audio and MP3 CDs. Most portable music devices are supported.

ATAidle: ATAidle is a utility to set the power management features of ata hard drives. This includes standby timeouts, power (APM) and acoustic (AAM) level settings, and it can show details about the installed devices.

Thanks to Jesse Smith and Bruce Cran for creating these PBIs and to draconian, mbybee, and kmf for requesting them.
