The MacPorts team is very proud to announce our third release of  
MacPorts within several days.

The pace of change has been fast and furious. This time we're just  

Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):

     - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove  
remnants of
       launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in  
       (jberry r24151).

     - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
       to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with  
       These functions should be considered test only for the time  
       and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
       (pipping r24148).

If you installed ports with 1.4.2 that have startup items, they were  
installed with SystemStarter, rather than Launchd support. You'll  
want to rebuild and reinstall those ports. We (singular) apologize  
for this issue.
