Newer versions of EasyPBI are being integrated into the base system, as the features users have requested are being added. The current version (in svn) is 1.2.

If you would like to test this version, run these commands as the superuser in your regular user's home directory:

svn co svn://svn.pcbsd.org/pcbsd/current/src-qt4
cd src-qt4/EasyPBI/
qmake-qt4 *.pro
make install

Then exit the superuser account and run EasyPBI as your regular user.

In order to build the src, you need to have Development-Qt and Development-VCS packages first installed from Control Panel -> System Manager -> System Packages -> Development.
