pacinfo 0.1 released

Some minutes ago I have released pacinfo v0.1.

You can find the project page at Google Code: http://code.google.com/p/pacinfo/

I have also uploaded a PKGBUILD to the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=46065

Features:

  • list all installed packages
  • screenshot support (fetching from http://screenshots.debian.net/ like the Ubuntu Software Center)
  • large screenshot if you click on the thumbnail
  • shows installed files of a package
  • shows some details of the package
  • full-text search in the whole package name

Report bugs and feature requests to the project page at Google Code…thanks.

pacinfo – Making progress

Just a few days after introducing pacinfo, I have made some progress in finishing the first public release. I have cleaned up the code and add new features which I wanted.

  • fetching package list and package information are completly asynchronous and doesn’t block the GUI anymore
  • ability to click on the small thumbnail and get the large version of it
  • see a progress bar for fetching package list and package information

I have no screenshots of the new feature, but you can have a look at this screencast I have made:

I think I will release the first public release this week and hosting the source code on sourceforge or similar.
