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.

The following PBIs are now available through Software Manager:

htop: an enhanced version of top, the interactive process viewer, which can display the list of processes in a tree form.

wxMaxima: a wxWidgets GUI for the computer algebra system maxima. Most of maxima functions are accessible through menus, some have dialogs. The input line has command history (up-key, down-key) and completion based on previous input (tab-key). wxMaxima provides 2d formated display of maxima output.

Thanks to Jesse Smith for creating and soundtek for requesting the htop PBI.

2">New PBIs: Synergy+ and Heyu2

The following PBIs have been added to Software Manager:

Synergy+: lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, without special hardware. All you need is a LAN connection. It’s intended for users with multiple computers, where each system uses its own display.

Heyu2: a text-based console program for remotely controlling lights and appliances in the home or office. Heyu uses the CM11A computer interface to send and receive X10 control signals over the AC power lines to modules which can turn On, Off, or Dim attached lamps or appliances. It can store a schedule of timed events in the CM11A memory for execution when the computer is turned off or disconnected.

Thanks to Jesse Smith for taking the time to create these PBIs and to billksun and kevin for suggesting them on the PBI Requests forum.
