Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

pkg-message:
For install:
## Missing features Some features found on Windows, macOS and Linux are not implemented: - Encrypted Media Extensions (requires Widevine CDM binary) - Process sandboxing (requires Capsicum backend) - Reduced memory usage (requires mozjemalloc) - Crash Reporter (requires Google Breakpad and reproducible builds) - WebVR (requires open source runtime) - TCP fast open - `about:networking#networkid` (requires link state notification) ## Audio backend Currently used audio backend can be inspected on `about:support` page. Supported backends and default probing order is as follows: - `pulse-rust` if `pulseaudio` package is installed (PULSEAUDIO option) - `jack` if `jackit` package is installed (JACK option) - `sndio` if `sndio` package is installed (SNDIO option) - `alsa` if `alsa-lib` package is installed (ALSA option) - `oss` (always available) To force a specific backend open `about:config` page and create `media.cubeb.backend` preference. Microphone selection only works in `oss`, `pulse-rust` backends. Other backends are limited to `default` which is usually `/dev/dsp`, so use virtual_oss to reroute microphones from non-default devices. ## Gamepad API Requires evdev(4) joystick support. On FreeBSD 13 and later enable hgame(4) while older versions can use sysutils/iichid or multimedia/webcamd. ## smb:// issues Network group, machine, and share browsing does not work correctly. ## sftp:// Only sftp access using public key authentication works. To easily setup public key authentication to `remote_host`: $ ssh-keygen $ cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh remote_host "cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys" The SSH server on `remote_host` must allow pub key authentication.
