layman / News: Recent posts

Layman-2.0.0 has finally been released.

After many delays and being too busy with life. I have finally gotten 2.0.0 out.
For those of you that have been running the release candidates, 2.0.0 is identical to rc5 with only the version number, README and CHANGES files having been updated.

I look forward to having 2.0.0 stabilized soon.

Next on the horizon for layman is gpg signed repositories list support and python 3 compatibility.

layman-2.0.0_rc3 released

I am very pleased that development and debugging of the layman-2.0 API has gone very well. There have been very few bugs reported, all of which have been fixed as well as a few that weren't reported. This should be the last of the rc releases, provided that nothing of any significance is reported.

I did forget to generate the new man/html page for this release, so it is lacking some of the recent changes.

layman-1.1 released

layman found a new home on SourceForge and I released version
1.1. This is mainly a bug fix release.

The new version adds unicode support, provides the --info action to
receive details on a specific overlay and also adds a --nocolor option
to remove color codes from the output. In addition the default for
listing the overlays has been changed and layman will now show all
overlays without using the -k option.... read more
