I am proud to announce the first alpha release for Muon Suite 2.14. The Muon Suite is a set of package management utilities for Debian-based Linux distributions built on KDE technologies. Packages for Kubuntu 13.10 “Raring Ringtail” are available in the QApt Experimental PPA. Here’s what’s new:
Muon Update Manager
Thanks to the excellent work of my colleagues Aurélien Gâteau and Aleix Pol, the user interface for the Muon Update Manager has been streamlined to make it easier to use.
Additionally, resources provided by the new KNewStuff and Bodega resource backends in Muon Discover and the Muon Software Center can now be updated through the Muon Update Manager.
Additionally, further work has been put into refining the Muon Discover frontend.
There are several features currently targeted for Muon Suite 2.1 that have not yet landed as of 2.0.65. These features include backends for both the Ubuntu software store (this includes Steam), as well as a PackageKit resource backend.
