This version has been released on Thursday, May 23, 2019.
This version is considered a Minor Release. Keep in mind, even though this is a minor release package, there are some very big changes to the core delivery of our applications. A long requested feature has been to bring back a CLI modular approach such as the
box command in our Community Edition. Well, we are happy to announce that the goodness is back! It has been built from the ground up to cater specifically to Pro Edition and is known as
qb. An example to install RTorrent would be
qb install rtorrent 0.9.7. You guessed it! This would install RTorrent v0.9.7 and it’s accompanied Libtorrent version. With this addition we have also added better dpkg handling on installing applications, this means there is a reduced chance of encountering dpkg locks on installing applications from the dashboard or CLI, whatever your flavor of awesomeness!
The core has been completely rewritten and though most of this is an underlying change, it paves the way for a load of exciting additions to come in the future. One change you will immediately notice on your Dashboards is during the uninstall of an application. YOu will now see the very same System Response widget modal that pops up during install, on the removal of apps. This does a few things
- It gives greater transparency in package removal
- Reduces the chances of dpkg locks by way of interaction on application removal as users can now watch the process to completion, rather than guess when an application is done fully uninstalling in the background as it has done in previous versions.
Of course, there are additional fixes and enhancements, with a lot more on the way! Check out the changelog below to get the full scope!
