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! (:

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

This is just an 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:
