Qt and GTK+ Front Ends for PKGNG
Justin Edward Muniz
This project aims to actualize a GUI for advanced binary package management in FreeBSD. The recently released PKGNG utility is the foundation for this project; PackageKit will provide a friendly and intuitive user interface. The package management interface will be easy to use and understand for new FreeBSD users, while offering powerful tools to novice and advanced users. Features of this approach include automatic updates, desktop notifications, and package management within jails.
