Hi,

we recently decided to replace the port browser[1] on crux.nu
with a simpler version in order to ease up maintainance.
and reduce the load on the server.

Since the new version does not collect detailed information
about the ports, you won't see all of the nifty features of the
previous one.

We enabled all the repositories previously available on the
portdb; all unreachable repos are now automatically hidden
until next sync. If your repository is missing and it shouldn't
please contact me.

As a side note, the url for the search page changed, so some
adjustement is needed for the ones who configured a search engine
for their browser. An updated reference for firefox is available
here: http://crux.nu/Public/FirefoxPortDBSearch

Thanks for your attention,
Regards, Simone
