My understanding is that MacFUSE has effectively been abandoned by its
author, and 2.0.3,2 is the latest released version (so, not
surprisingly, it's the one available in the port)

There's been some work in the community about creating a newer version,
and in particular on getting 64-bit kernel support. Ticket #26115 has
some links to relevant threads. As far as I know all of this is pretty

As the macfuse port's maintainer, I'm not entirely opposed to updating
the port to an "unofficial" version if there's not going to be another
"official" release. (Though the thought does make me uneasy -- is there
any precedent for doing that?) But I certainly don't want to update to
a version that's also unstable.
