A small update to the PBI Builder software, version 2.4, has been released.
This version adds a few new variables to the module creation process, which allows developers to pick “target” ports they wish to have autopopulated and added to the resulting PBI file.
Programs under PC-BSD are completely self-contained and self-installing, in a graphical format. A PBI file also ships with all the files and libraries necessary for the installed program to function, eliminating much of the hardship of dealing with broken dependencies and system incompatibilities. PBI files also provide developers and packagers with advanced scripting and user interaction in an entirely graphical format, making the entire install procedure similar to what a user would expect from other popular graphical operating systems.
For full details, please take a look at the changelog, and the wiki page.
