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.

KDE is a powerful Free Software graphical desktop environment for Linux and Unix workstations. This package does not contain anything by itself -- it is a "meta-port" that depends on other KDE packages. Its sole purpose is to require dependencies so users can install this package only and have all the KDE stuff pulled in by the port/package dependency mechanism. x11/kde6 contains the future KDE Frameworks, Plasma Desktop and Applications.

x11/kde6: new meta-port -- there is no KDE 6 ...

... but there is

  * KDE Plasma 6-beta
  * KDE Frameworks 6-beta
  * KDE Gear 24.02-beta

This meta-port pulls all of them together.

    | This is a very early preview intended for developers and testers only.  |
    | We hope it will be picked up by rolling unstable distros, but it is far |
    | from being ready for day-to-day use yet.                                |
