The following PBI is now available from Software Manager:

GMT: Generic Mapping Tools is a collection of public-domain Unix tools that allows you to manipulate x,y and x,y,z data sets (filtering, trend fitting, gridding, projecting, etc.) and produce PostScript illustrations ranging from simple x-y plots, via contour maps, to artificially illuminated surfaces and 3-d perspective views in black/white or 24bit color. Linear, log10, and power scaling is supported in addition to 25 common map projections. The processing and display routines within GMT are completely general and will handle any (x,y) or (x,y,z) data as input.

Thanks to Jesse Smith for creating this PBI and P202 for requesting it.


3D, Poedit, Kid3, and OpenTaxSolver">New PBIs: Wings3D, Poedit, Kid3, and OpenTaxSolver

The following PBIs are now available through Software Manager:

Wings3D: an open source polygon mesh modeler inspired by Nendo. It allows you to intuitively build a 3D mesh and even assign materials to it.

Poedit: a cross-platform gettext catalogs (.po files) editor. It is built with wxWidgets toolkit and can run on any platform supported by it. It aims to provide a more convenient approach to editing catalogs than launching vi and editing the file by hand.

Kid3: an application to edit the ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags in MP3 files in an efficient way. Also tags in Ogg/Vorbis and FLAC files are supported.

OpenTaxSolver: a free program for calculating Tax Form entries and tax-owed or refund-due, such as US Federal or State personal income taxes. An optional graphical front-end, OTS_GUI, has been added. Preliminary versions for Canada and the United Kingdom were posted in previous years and may be updated with help from volunteers.

Thanks to Rick Richard, Sam Lin and Joachim Holzwarth for creating these PBIs.


117, and PSPP">New PBIs: Calibre, GL-117, and PSPP

The following PBIs are now available through Software Manager:

Calibre: a complete e-library solution that includes library management, format conversion, news feeds to ebook conversion, e-book reader sync features, and an integrated e-book viewer.

GL-117: an action flight simulator. Enter the Eagle Squadron and succeed in several challanging missions leading though different landscapes. Five predefined levels of video quality and an amount of viewing ranges let you perfectly adjust the game to the performance of your system.

PSPP: a program for statistical analysis of sampled data. It interprets commands in the SPSS language and produces tabular output in ASCII or PostScript format.

Thanks to Jesse Smith for creating these PBIs and to bsdaddict and abik for requesting them.


2">New PBI: nip2

The following PBI is now available through Software Manager:

nip2: a graphical user interface for VIPS. VIPS is a free image processing system. It is good with large images (images larger than the amount of RAM you have available), with many CPUs, for working with colour, and for general research & development.

Thanks to Jesse Smith for creating the PBI and to P202 for requesting the PBI.


New PBIs: DesktopBSD Tools, Duplicity, TightVNC

The following PBIs are now available through Software Manager:

DesktopBSD Tools: a collection of applications designed to make life easier and increase productivity. Even inexperienced users can easily perform administrative tasks efficiently, such as configuring wireless networks, accessing USB storage devices or installing and upgrading software.

Duplicity: backs directories by producing encrypted tar-format volumes and uploading them to a remote or local file server. Because duplicity uses librsync, the incremental archives are space efficient and only record the parts of files that have changed since the last backup. Because duplicity uses GnuPG to encrypt and/or sign these archives, they will be safe from spying and/or modification by the server.

TightVNC: optimized to work over slow network connections such as low-speed modem links. While original VNC may be very slow when your connection is not fast enough, with TightVNC you can work remotely almost in real time in most environments. Besides bandwidth optimizations,TightVNC also includes many other improvements, optimizations and bugfixes over VNC. Note that TightVNC is free, cross-platform and compatible with the standard VNC.

Thanks to Jesse Smith for creating the PBIs and to dejamuse and bsdimp for requesting the PBIs.


New PBIs: Anjuta and KPovModeler

The following PBIs are now available in Software Manager:

Anjuta: a very versatile Integrated development environment for C and C++. Written in GTK/GNOME and written for GTK+/GNOME, it features many advanced programming tools and utilities. It is basically a GUI interface for the bunch of command line programming utilities and tools available for FreeBSD, which are usually run in console and are very user unfriendly.

KPovModeler: a modeling and composition program for creating POV-Ray™ scenes in KDE.

Thanks to Jesse Smith and Sam Lin for making these PBIs and to krzysiek for suggesting Anjuta.
