Y PPA Manager has been released!

Y PPA Manager has been released, according to the announcement, Starting with this version Y PPA Manager should fully work under KDE (though there are some minor bugs like notifications not being displayed when adding a PPA), there are also various changes under the hood and bug fixes.



Changes in Y PPA Manager

  • added Ubuntu appindicator: works in stand alone mode (automatically starts when you log in and doesn’t require Y PPA Manager to run) or in regular mode: starts when the user opens Y PPA Manager and quits when Y PPA Manager is closed. The appindicator is disabled by default and can be enabled from the settings.
  • Ubuntu mono dark/light icons for the new appindicator (not the best icons, I know…)
  • use built-in (doesn’t require Faenza to be installed) slightly modified Faenza icons for the main UI (this is mainly to look better in KDE because some icons used before were missing in KDE)
  • added “import all missing GPG keys” feature (available under Advanced)
  • added “fix all GPG badsig errors” feature (available under Advanced)
  • kdesudo integration
  • renamed NotifyOSD icons to work with KDE too
  • Linux Mint 12 Lisa support (not tested since Linux Mint 12 hasn’t been released yet)
