MacPorts 2.5.3 now available July 5, 2018

The MacPorts Project is pleased to announce the release of version 2.5.3. This is a bugfix release with small changes only. See the ChangeLog for the list of changes.

If you already have MacPorts installed, the preferred method for updating is to run:

sudo port selfupdate

For new installs, package installers are available for the most current macOS 10.13 High Sierra and all older releases back to Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. The source is also available as tarballs compressed with gzip or bzip2, or from the git tag.

Detached PGP signatures for the disk images, package installers and source tarballs have been made by Joshua Root, and the git tag has been signed with the same key. The public key is available on the keyservers and the MacPorts wiki, the fingerprint being:

0x01FF673FB4AAE6CD: C403 7936 5723 6DCF 2E58 0C02 01FF 673F B4AA E6CD
