The Fink project is proud to announce the availability of a new binary distribution, version 0.8.1 for Intel and PowerPC.

Over 1900 pre-compiled packages for PowerPC and 1700 for the Intel platform have been made available. Including new precompiled packages for KDE, GNOME and many popular scientific applications.

Improved documentation from the Fink website including translations into French, Japanese and simplified Chinese.

Fink is free, licensed under the GPL.
This is a general public availability release for PowerPC and Intel Macintosh computer. Fink urges you to observe that the Intel platform is still considered "beta" quality, and a number of packages (particularly packages in the "unstable" tree) either do not compile, or compile but do not run. Work to improve this situation is ongoing.

To download the binary installer please visit:

Current Fink users should use fink to upgrade their installation. People running 0.8.0 are strongly urged to upgrade their installation to benefit from the many bug fixes in 0.8.1

With this new release to better support both platforms that Apple now offers, Fink has taken yet another step to improve the service to its community.

About Fink.
The Fink project wants to bring the full world of Unix Open Source software to Darwin and Mac OS X.

We modify Unix software so that it compiles and runs on Mac OS X ("port" it) and make it available for download as a coherent distribution.

Fink uses Debian tools like dpkg and apt-get to provide powerful binary package management.

You can choose whether you want to download precompiled binary packages or build everything from source.

The Fink project has an estimated user base of well over 150_000 users, concentrated in the United States of America, Japan and Europe. With community members in Africa, South America and the Middle East as well.
