[FreeBSD Ports Version Check] Newer available versions for ports you maintain
[Please read the first paragraph of the footer for additional
information about the version checking]
As maintainer of one or more FreeBSD ports, I would like to inform
you that a new version is available for the following port(s):
Port Current version New version URLs
------------------------------------ --------------- ----------- ----
www/mod_cband 0.9.5.3 0.9.6.0 
- The algorithm for the next version is very simple:
- For 95% of the ports, current version 1.2.4 will resolve into
1.2.5, 1.3.0 and 2.0.0.
- For ports which use an odd minor number to indicate a development
version, current version 1.2.4 will resolve into 1.2.5, 1.4.0
and 2.0.0. Same idea for ports which use an even number for this.
- For numbered ports (automake15 for example), it will only check
for prefixes with 1.5.
These definitions have to be entered manually, and can be found
If a port incorrectly shows up as "a new version is available",
let me know and I can add it to the list and/or make a filter for
Please keep in mind that...
- the check was only done in relation to the current version, so
it is possible that the new version is not the newest version
available on the master sites.
- the full check of all ports takes more than two days, so it is
possible that a new version is already commited. In that case,
please ignore this email.
- this is the only time you will get an alert about the above
mentioned port versions on the below mentioned URLs. When the
port version is updated, a check will again be done for it. When
a new URL with a newer version is found, a check will be done for
- Not interested in further alerts? Send me the email address you
received it on for a full block, or the name of the port for a
port-only block, or the name of a host for a host-only block.

unchanged until the next run.
