Muon Suite 1.3 Beta Released - Kubuntu PPA updated

Over on Jonathan Thomas's blog it was just anounced that the Muon Suite has been updated to 1.2.8 (1.3 Beta). This release brings both improvements and bug fixes. Per the release announcement, highlights to Muon include:

Features:
  • Instead of just showing a blank view when no updates are available, show a little message in the window saying that the computer is either up to date, or has not been checked for updates in a while, and advise accordingly. (MUM)
  • Added keywords to allow Muon to be found easier via KRunner. (MPM)
Bugfixes:
  • Fixed a memory leak in the new Updater where Application objects would never be deleted. (MUM)
  • Fixed a bug where the new Update manager would complain about desktop computers being unplugged. (MUM) LP: #894123
  • Fixed the progress widget in the new update manager hiding immediately after being shown, the second time it is shown. (MUM)
  • Fixed a bug where the Muon Package Manager wouldn't catch an uninstallable dependency as making the dependent package uninstallable. (MPM)


There are also bug fixes to the LibQApt back-end as well. The original post is here.

Kubuntu 11.10 users can install this latest version from the author's PPA, found at QApt Experimental PPA.

We have it up-and-running here, and all seems well!
