New version with many stability improvements and a new (faster) search backend for full text search.
This release focusses on bug fixes and keeping track of library changes in its backends. Hopefully this is the release before the Debian etch release and thus will become a part of it.
As usual it will be available from the Debian archive soon (today or tomorrow).
I've uploaded a new release to the SF area, note however, that the main source for downloading packagesearch is the Debian Archive now.
The version of Debian Package Search has hit Debian unstable, and should reach testing tomorrow (thanks Enrico)
I am proud to announce, that Debian Package Search 1.0 has recently hit Debian unstable (thanks to Enrico Zini). I have also asked Enrico to upload version 1.0.1 and I think it will take only a short time until it is available.
This release fixes a serious bug. The apllication failed to start if a "debtags update" was not yet performed.
It does also some cosmetic enhancements.
This version does not include many changes. But as version 0.6 is out for a while now, and I have not yet received any bug reports, I thought to switch to 1.0.
The changes done are small changes to increase the usability, e.g. navigation in the tag list is improved (right click does no longer select a tag), and the file list will only be shown after clicking the "Show" button to avoid unwanted of waiting.
This version comes with the option to directly select packages to show.
Now there is the possibility to hide facets from the debtags search through "Plugin Settings" dialog. I have removed the exclude tags option as I think it is of little use and burdened the UI.
This version comes with a dynamic plugin structure. All searches and informations are offered by plugins. The plugins can be loaded and unloaded at runtime (thouggh the debtags plugin does not like that).
it comes with compiling sources :-) and a minor bugfix
I had to create this release because major updates in the debtags system where performed and I had to keep up with it.
It brings some minor improvments and the ability to search for files and show the files installed by a package.
This version brings not many new features but instead a complete internal rework.
The most important main feature is that more than one words can be entered into the apt search and all must be included.
The internal rework greatly simplifies the code, seperating all the tangled code into plugins. So it will be easy to add new search methods or package information later.
