Portato 0.14.1 released

leave a comment »

Well … it probably won’t hurt to announce it here too:

Because of some API-changes in portage, I had to release a bugfix release for portato. And well … it is called 0.14.1 as you might have guessed :P

At the moment I am not developing portato actively. This is partly due to lack of time and partly due to lack of interest. The latter one is especially created by the fast-changing portage (which is in itself a nice thing), where I can’t keep step with w/o needing to spend tons of time in it.

Portato 0.14 released

leave a comment »

“Was lange währt, wird gut” is the German saying (the dictionary tells me “Good things come to those who wait.” is the English translation) — hopefully this applies for this version of Portato too.

The changes:

  • NEW: allow eix as backend DB
  • NEW: show the list of world packages
  • NEW: allow to search descriptions
  • NEW: add an icon to signal the ‘best’ version for a package
  • CHANGE: use an internal messagequeue module instead of external shm
  • FIX: bugmail sending
  • I18N: Italian translation – thanks to Ponsi
  • I18N: French translation – thanks to Clément ‘moonpyk’ Bourgeois

Personally, I find the addition of the eix-backend the most important improvement. This now allows fast startup and fast searching. Additionally the long awaitened feature of searching descriptions is only possible here (implementing it with other backends would make the startup sloooooooow).

So – let’s hope that the bugs are on vacation. :) — And a big thanks to idl0r for adding it to the portage tree in no time.

So — there it is: the new Portato release :)

Changelog is here.

Feel free to use it — it still waits for inclusion in the portage tree, but this will happen in the next future, I’m sure.
