The GSRC remains one of GNU's less known programs and is an easy way to download and install GNU software.

GSRC is short for the GNU Source Release Collection and is a BSD Ports-like system for installing packages. The new version out this past week is GSRC 2014.07.06 and it primarily updates existing packages while adding a few new packages.

New GNU packages for GSRC are easejs, gnudos, guile-opengl, and guile-rpc. The updated packages vary quite a bit but you can learn more about this release and GSRC via the mailing list announcement and the project page at GNU.org.
