Muon Suite 1.3 RC Released

Another month, another pre-release. In another month, version 1.3 of the Muon Suite will be released, so please get in all the testing you can!

I am proud to announce the release candidate for Muon Suite 1.3. The Muon Suite is a set of package management utilities for Debian-based Linux distributions built on KDE technologies. Packages for Kubuntu 11.10 “Oneiric Ocelot” are available in the QApt Experimental PPA, as well as in the main repositories for the pre-release version of Kubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin”.

The focus for this release has been fixing bugs both in the new software being introduced in 1.3, as well as bugs that have existed in Muon from before 1.3. I plan to release a final bugfix release for Muon Suite 1.2 containing the relevant fixes from 1.3.

For a look at what’s new, see the alpha and beta release notes.


Detailed changelogs for LibQApt and Muon can be found here and here, respectively.

    Just one simply question as I am not sure if to open a bug report.
    Debian Experimental and Ubuntu Precise now store Qt4.8 libs in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ and not straight under /usr/lib.
    When I am trying to build muon now it complains about not finding for example .
    Is it a bug in muon or is it a bug in my development environment ?

    if the path contains сyrilic symbols, Qapt can’t install packages

  5. Madeddy says:

    Not usable for me. MUON is missing the opportunity to use a proxy such as in synaptic.(e.g. apt-proxy or apt-cacher-ng)

    Apart from that, good work!


  6. Corrie says:

    Not usable for me either. Cannot search for packages, which is a bit of a big deal, imo.

    The filter doesn’t work at all, and there is no other way to find packages except by scrolling through the entire list!!!

    I can’t believe Synaptic was dropped for this garbage.
