PortAuthority, MacPorts GUI for Catalina

I'd like to take a moment to re-introduce my GUI for MacPorts, 
PortAuthority, now updated for Catalina.

PortAuthority makes it easy to install thousands of Unix software 
packages for macOS.  PortAuthority's familiar three-pane interface lets 
you get started doing what you want to do--finding, installing, and 
removing software for MacPorts.

PortAuthority is the longest-running GUI for MacPorts, in active 
development since the early days of the project (2004, when it was still 
DarwinPorts!), and the only current, stable GUI available on the market. 
Other attempts to develop a native UI for MacPorts have stalled out, but 
PortAuthority is still here, keeping up with changes in both macOS and 
in MacPorts.

My app had previously been proprietary shareware, then was open-sourced 
under the MIT license and costing a nominal sum to register. I have now 
made the app fully free to download and use, but I do request that you 
donate to support the app's development at Liberapay, which is a sort of 
Patreon for OSS developers.

More information about the app, a download link, and a donation link are 
found at https://www.codebykevin.com/portauthority.html.

Thank you!
