Muon Suite 1.1.2 released

I am glad to announce the second bugfix release for Muon Suite 1.1. The Muon Suite is a set of package management utilities for Debian-based Linux distributions built on KDE technologies.

The 1.1.2 release fixes a serious bug caused by a regression in Solid, KDE’s hardware abstraction library in 4.6.2. This regression has since been fixed for KDE 4.6.3, but as this is a serious bug a hotfix is needed. Also included, as always, is a month’s worth of further translations.

Binary packages are available for Kubuntu 10.10 via the usual PPA. Further technical information about the release, including source tarball downloads, can be found at the project pages here and here.

Due to a heavy workload at school I’ve not been able to put out the next prerelease of Muon 1.2. I do plan on putting a beta out soon, though.

    I like Muon a lot, but cannot build this for Lucid.

    I am unable to install the libqapt package – make fails as

    /home/john/AppDownLoads/libqapt-1.1.2/src/cache.cpp: In member function ‘bool QApt::Cache::open()’:

    Any thoughts anyone?

    When default on Kubuntu?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Pity – I have my laptop running Maverick and Muon works well there.

    I may take the jump to upgrade my main machine – but not just yet.

    I would like to suggest two new features to Moun:

    1- Generate download script of packages selected to install;
    2- Save the last opened tab on left-side bar.

    Anyway. Moun is a fantastic software. Congratulations!
