The release train keeps rolling on… In one week both Muon and QApt 1.0 will be released. Until then, here’s one last pre-release to iron out any remaining issues before the stable release. Packages are in the normal place, and sources for QApt 0.5.0 can be found here. (Muon 0.5.0 sources will be uploaded in the usual place once I get back to the hotel… unfortunately I cannot do the GPG signing of the tarball on my grandparent’s computer) Here’s what’s new since last week:
- No coding changes, but there are now a weeks worth more translations for the qapt-batch utility. 🙂 Go, go kde-i18n!
- A teeny new feature, but I added a nice little busy indicator overlay on the changelog viewing tab while it fetches the changelog. This improves usability, so that you can tell when it is really working, etc. Try it out. 🙂
- Fixed a bug where an error such as an authentication error or download error would not properly return Muon to a usable state. (Grayed-out toolbar, getting trapped in the preview view.) Bug 246596
- A minor code cleanup for the software-properties-kde launching code. Nothing too special.
- Fixed a typo in the dependencies tab.
As you can see, the list of changes and bugfixes has slowed significantly. This is a sign that Muon really is ready for a release in one week; I’d be a bit afraid if I was still fixing major bugs at this point. 🙂
So, yeah, final release in a week. I’ll be getting the RC into maverick in the next few days (keep in mind that it won’t be default just yet) and will update to the final release the day it becomes available. (“Coincidentally” also being the day of Ubuntu feature freeze ;)) Thanks for all the support, testing and bug reporting. At this point all reported bugs against Muon have been fixed, and Muon has been translated in to over half a dozen languages. See you in a week!
