Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

GNU Dico is a flexible modular implementation of DICT server (RFC 2229). It handles database accesses using loadable modules, and does not depend on particular database format. The package includes several loadable modules for interfacing with various database formats, among them a module for databases. New modules can be written in C, Guile or Python. The package also includes a console client program for querying remote dictionary servers.
