Version 2.0 of the PBI Builder Software has been released today for systems running PC-BSD 7.x.

The PBI Builder is a development tool used to create PBI files from applications in the FreeBSD ports tree. This version implements PBI Schema Version 2, which drastically improves the self-containment of PBIs, and reduces the need for sym-links to be created outside of a PBIs directory structure. This improvement greatly enhances the reliability of PBI files, while at the same time preventing potential conflicts with a PBI and user-installed applications from FreeBSD ports.
