I have launched an initiative to give the community the opportunity to fund further development work on portmaster. As much as I love doing this work I need to be able to support myself and my family and the kinds of features that users have requested (such as package support) will take a lot of time to implement correctly.
The URL is here: http://dougbarton.us/portmaster-proposal.html
Several users have been kind enough to send donations and I have updated the web page to indicate the work that has been completed, and that which is in progress.
If you have any interest in funding this project take a look at that web page. Of course additional ideas for features are also welcome.
Have a look at or download portmaster here
