PortAuthority 7.0

I've released version 7.0 of PortAuthority, my GUI for the MacPorts Unix software management system. PortAuthority is the oldest and, these days, only actively-maintained UI client for MacPorts. Its goal is to make using MacPorts easier.

This version of PortAuthority benefits from the many improvements to Tk/Cocoa that I've been working on in recent months, and is generally more responsive and refined. It also restores native system dialogs for running operations with elevated privileges, such as installing a software port. Finally, this release adds support for Mac system notifications if Growl is not installed.

PortAuthority costs $30 for a new installation, and lifetime upgrades are free to registered users. It's worth a try.
