apt-offline 1.4

apt-offline 1.4 has been released [1]. This is a minor bug fix release. In fact, one feature, offline bug reports (–bug-reports), has been dropped for now. The Debian BTS interface seems to have changed over time and the older debianbts.py module (that used the CGI interface) does not seem to work anymore. The current debbugs.py module seems to have switched to the SOAP interface. There are a lot of changes going on personally, I just haven’t had the time to spend. [Read More]

apt-offline - 1.3

It is still 2012 in this part of the world and the world is still intact. Since nothing major happened, I thought of spending the new gifted time to add a long pending item to apt-offline. As shown in the screen shots, apt- offline’s GUI now has support to detect and display the downloaded offline bug reports.

This is part of the just released, version 1.3.

apt-offline - 1.0

Hello World. I am very pleased to announce apt-offline , version 1.0. This release adds a Graphical User Interace to apt-offline. Big thanks to Abhishek Mishra and Manish Sinha who did all the development work to make this GUI happen. Help: I was wondering if there is a logo for APT that I could use in the big blank space on the main window. Apart from the GUI, there are a bunch of bug fixes in this release (which have already been made available for the Squeeze release also). [Read More]

pypt-offline goodness

I created pypt-offline with the hope that it’d be useful for people who don’t have an internet connection but would still like to enjoy Debian. Enjoying Debian is about enjoying its Package Manager, APT. I don’t have any data to show if pypt-offline is in use by anybody. I too, use it rarely, when at my hometown. But I hope people who use it, find it useful. At my hometown, I use internet service from my friend’s ISP. [Read More]
