Muon Suite 1.4 Beta Released

June 11, 2012

Rolling along right on schedule, I am proud to announce the beta release for Muon Suite 1.4. The Muon Suite is a set of package management utilities for Debian-based Linux distributions built on KDE technologies. Packages for Kubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” are available in the QApt Experimental PPA.

Improvements since alpha include assorted bugfixes within Muon Discover, as well as a few new features. The primary feature is that the Muon Software Center and Muon Discover can now automatically install language support for applications when run on a system containing Ubuntu’s check-language-support script from language-selector. This allows e.g. translations for the Gimp or other GTK applications to be automatically installed on a KDE system, where they might not already be installed. Systems without the check-language-support utility will notice no change, and things will work exactly as they have been.

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


Muon Suite 1.3.2 Released

June 4, 2012

I am glad to announce the second bugfix release for Muon Suite 1.3. The Muon Suite is a set of package management utilities for Debian-based Linux distributions built on KDE technologies.

The 1.3.2 release mainly consists of improvements to the Muon Suite’s underlying LibQApt package management library, but also contains several fixes for the suite itself. In particular, the “installed files” list for the kppp package should now be accurate within the Muon Package Manager, and several (thankfully rare) crashes have been resolved with this latest version.

Packages for Kubuntu 12.04 are available from the QApt repository.

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