PPA status: Midori 0.4.6

28th August 2012

In official Debian repositories there’s pretty old version of Midori available. In my PPA you can find latest, 0.4.6 release – in unstable without GTK+3 and in experimental with GTK+3 support. Remember to use mirror site located here:

Official ICS 4.0.4 on Galaxy Tab 10.1 (GT-P7500)

26th August 2012

This is just a quick heads-up. Sure, Android 4.0.x and 4.1.x were available for quite some time via CM9 and CM10, but for the official one Galaxy Tab 10.1 users needed to wait really long time. Now, you can go and grab ICS 4.0.4 from SamMobile for example. Few things worth noting:

  • CWM by Pershoot is working without any issues (older ones from 5 series should work too).
  • Rooting is easy as always, though you will need to install both packages for ARM CPU from this site (in CWM, of course):
  • Reverting from 4.1.x (CM10) to official ICS is not an issue, as long as you make factory reset.
  • Basically 4.0.x line is much faster, smoother and more responsive than HB 3.2.

Enjoy! (:

PPA status: Deja-dup 23.90

25th August 2012

Another quicky, cause I found a spare moment: latest deja-dup release (23.90) is now available in experimental branch of my PPA. Remember to use mirror site located here:

PPA status: Audacious 3.3.1

15th August 2012

Just an quick update – latest stable release, 3.3.1, of Audacious media player is now available in experimental branch. Keep in mind, that you still need to use mirror to obtain packages:

PPA status: Audacious 3.3-beta1, Revelation 0.4.14 and Xournal 0.4.7

16th July 2012

It’s been awhile, I know, but there were few reasons for that and I will write about it somewhere in the near future.

Mostly what I’ve done in the last few days:

  • Lots of cleanings – all old and no longer supported packages were cleaned from repositories.
  • Preparation for movement to a new server – thanks to that,  repository will be much more reliable, properly backed up and blazing  fast (I kid you not!).
  • Bringing up new build environment – much more powerful machine  (which saves me a lot of time on building packages), pretty much no  space limitation for my needs.

So, not a lot of actual building, isn’t it? But even though, for  purposes of this post, I’ve build three new packages (I wanted to test new environment too): Audacious 3.3 Beta 1 (Beta 2 is already released and I will build and upload it tomorrow), Revelation 0.4.14 (latest upstream release) and Xournal 0.4.7 (latest upstream release).

If you have any package suggestions, that you would like to see in Debian, leave a comment, tweet me or drop me a line on  e-mail/facebook/g+ with suggestions (:
