Code by Kevin has released PortAuthority 2.7, a GUI for the MacPorts package management system for Mac OS X. PortAuthority provides a graphical user interface for the MacPorts package management system for Mac OS X. MacPorts is a powerful command-line tool for installing and updating a variety of Unix-based applications for the Mac. Its power, though, comes at the cost of some complexity; in the past the only way to utilize MacPorts was to type in various commands into the Mac's Terminal application, which can be intimidating for those users without a Unix background.

PortAuthority aims to bring the power of MacPorts to the traditional Mac user by providing a user-friendly graphical interface to MacPorts. Using a familiar combination of windows, icons, and menus, PortAuthority users can search, install, update, and remove MacPorts programs and the MacPorts infrastructure itself.

Among the features and improvements in this release:
* Bug fix: Demo version no longer crashes on initial startup
* Can now print log output to default printer
* Now uses integrated help viewer
* Saves window position on application close
* New graphics engine for improved UI appearance
