Well, I’ve just released PackageKit 0.2.3 (stable) into the world. I’m going to build this for Fedora 9, as it’s a massive improvement over 0.1.12 and should have no regressions and plenty of nice features compared to that old version. It’ll sit in updates-testing for a few weeks, and if there are no problems I’ll push it to updates.
Of course, declaring the 0.2.x branch as stable allows us to all do some cool stuff on master. We’re working on making the UIs look beautiful.
Two examples are below, for installing more packages to satisfy deps, and also removing other packages if you chose something with dependants.
We’re also fixing up the file viewer to be a treeview, as a long list of files to scroll though is pretty boring. We welcome newcomers if you want to have a try at this hacking thing.
