openbechede is a fast and simple way to install OpenBSD packages and their dependencies. With openbechede you can keep your obsd packages updated. Also, you can install packages (and automatically, their dependencies), remove them, fetch new lists of packages, upgrade your system to the latest snapshot/to -stable, fetch the ports tree, install, and keep your ports up to date. openbechede logs its activity to a file you can specify.

Release Notes: This release adds improved sudo code and fixes for openbechede not checking whether it could run the necessary programs, a problem that could arise when doing an "openbechede uports" without having a "port:" line in the configuration file, and some typos. Now, when you install a port using "openbechede iport" and the port is successfully installed, it's added to /etc/openbechede.conf (to check for updates).
Release Notes: Now openbechede is able to install ports. You can fetch the ports tree, check for updates and automatically install them with this new release. There is also a no-prompt option for ports installing/updating, and some minor fixes were made.
Release Notes: It is now possible to do a 'stableupg', which upgrades your system to -stable. When doing a snapshotupg or stableupg, MD5 sums are compared with those on the server. Files in /etc are not overwritten, and the kernel (/bsd) is backed up if 'bsd' is added to the SYSUPG variable in the configuration file. Downloads may be saved by using the KEEPDL variable. File permissions are now preserved when performing upgrades.
Release Notes: A fix was made for an upgrade failure that occurred if you had 'openbechede' somewhere like /usr/sbin and $PWD wasn't '/'.
Release Notes: When you were upgrading a package which was required by another one, openbechede wasn't able to upgrade it. Some error messages used to appear while upgrading. You can now run it from anywhere (it isn't compulsory to have openbechede somewhere in your path).
