Fink Binary Installer Updated With Improved Package Manager

The Fink Project has released an update for Fink Binary Installer, bringing it to version 0.7.0 and 0.6.3. Fink Binary Installer is a utility designed for open sourced software development. The update features an improved package manager. According to The Fink Project

The Fink project is proud to announce the availability of a new binary distribution, version 0.7.0 and 0.6.3.

Fink is a project that wants to bring the full world of Unix Open Source software to Darwin and Mac OS X. As a result, we have two main goals. First, to modify existing Open Source software so that it will compile and run on Mac OS X. (This process is called porting.) Second, to make the results available to casual users as a coherent, comfortable distribution that matches what Linux users are used to. (This process is called packaging.) The project offers precompiled binary packages as well as a fully automated build-from-source system.

Various improvements have been included in this release. A package manager which is better able to handle exceptional situations. New binary versions of many previously unavailable packages.

You can find more information about the Fink Binary Installer update at the Fink Project Web site. The Fink Binary Installer is available as freeware.
