Muon Suite 1.2.2 released

I am glad to announce the first bugfix release for Muon Suite 1.2. The Muon Suite is a set of package management utilities for Debian-based Linux distributions built on KDE technologies.

This is the second monthly bugfix release for the 1.2 series, and brings several fixes for Multi-Arch packages on 64-bit systems with Kubuntu 11.10, as well as fixes for a few other bugs with package searching, the history view, and the QApt .deb Installer.

Packages for Kubuntu 11.04 will be available soon from the QApt repository. I will try to get 1.2.2 pushed as an official update for Kubuntu 11.10 over the next week or so using the Ubuntu Stable Release Update process. Since this has a more rigorous testing process than my unofficial PPA, regression testing from users will be required. Stay tuned for more info about that if you’d like to help!

Further technical information about the release, including source tarball downloads and a detailed changelog, can be found at the project pages here and here.

I will be releasing the first pre-release of the Muon Suite 1.3 next weekend, so stay tuned for that too.

    I am having problems compiling this new version under Debian(libqapt to be exactly) with libxapian22-1.2.7
    I think its definitely a dependency problem with a xapian package. But I am not quite sure with which exactly.

    Do you have any ideas ?

    • Yeah, it’s definitely a problem with xapian or the xapian package, but I don’t know how to fix it. 😦
      Since the error is occurring in the xapian header files, there’s nothing I can do from libqapt to fix it, that I know of.

      The development release of Ubuntu only has 1.2.5, so maybe it’s a problem with newer versions of xapian.

    First, you are making a great job.

    One question,

    why you not publish Muon 1.2.2 for Oneiric in your ppa (in addition to Natty)?

    Because that way we would not have to wait for official release from Kubuntu’s repositories (slow process).

    Best regards
