PPA status

A lot of stuff is going on in my PPA lately, including its new, redesigned website. Many packages has been removed, added and updated to the latest versions, so I won’t be able to cover all of these changes. Here are the ones I find most noteworthy:

  • Audacious 3.4-beta1: new upstream beta release.
  • Geary 0.3.1: new upstream release.
  • Midori 0.5.0: new upstream release. 0.4.8 was moved to unstable branch.
  • Musique 1.2.1: new upstream release.
  • Pantheon-Files 0.1: initial release, but working fine.
  • Scratch 1.1.1: initial release, more testers needed.

Coming soon:

  • Plank: I’m waiting for valac-0.20 to enter Debian repositories.

That’s it so far. If you have any suggestions or you want to report any bugs, catch me on twitter.

Giving eOS Luna Beta 1 a test drive

Now that eOS Luna Beta 1 was released,  I decided to switch to it completely. Awhile ago I gave some nightly  builds a try, I liked what I saw, but it had too many rough edges for me  at that time and I switched back to Debian. How long will it last this time? We’ll see.

PPA status: latest audacious, deja-dup, midori & uberwriter

  • audacious 3.3.2: bugfix release, available in experimental.
  • deja-dup 2.40.0: first stable release of 2.40 branch, available in experimental.
  • midori 0.4.7: latest upstream release, available both in unstable and experimental (GTK+3).
  • uberwriter 12.10.02: first public beta, available in experimental  branch (be careful with this one and report any encountered bugs).

PPA status: UberWriter 12.08.28

If you, like me, need distraction-free editor to create proper content, then you will love UberWriter! I started (successfully) porting this app to Debian and you can find 12.08.28 release in my experimental branch. Be cautious however, cause this release by default installs under /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/uberwriter path. If you want to help me, then please grab package (*.deb should be sufficient) from here: deb.ianod.es/debian/incoming. The only difference is the usage of the default installation path (/usr/bin, /usr/share etc.), but I didn’t had time to test it myself. Have fun and please report any problems you will encounter! (:
