Major update from 0.7.2 to 1.4 by new maintainer. This is almost a complete
rework of the port.
See the page http://news.open-bio.org/archives/cat_bioperl.html for the
changes between 1.2 and 1.4. The older changes are in the CVS tree.
From the new maintainer:
Note that this new port just handles the installation of bioperl and
not of additional extra stuff (bioperl-gui, bioperl-corba-server,
bioperl-corba-client). This is unlike the behaviour of the current
The extra stuff, though still functional, had very little adoption
among users, and does not appear to be currently supported/maintained.
