Yum Extender

I have just released Yum Extender 2.0.5, not a lot of changes, but a lot of translation updates, thank to all translators and the transiflex maintainers to make it easy for the translator to submit translations upstream.

It is the first release for a long time and the 2.0.x code base is quite stable at the moment and there will only be made bug fixes to the 2.0.x series, no new fancy stuff.

I have started to work on the next generation of yumex, it will be redesigned from scratch, because i want to solve one of the mayor problems in yumex, that the gui get stuck when there is no callback from yum in a long periode of time. so i has started to design a client/server based yum backend there can run in a separete child process and communicate with the gui frontend, using a generic interface. This separation has a lot of benefit and will make it a lot easier to maintain the gui and make it work with different versions of yum or even other package managers.

    Thank God you’re still working on YumEx. I really can’t get myself to (want to) use that other Fedora package management software ;).

    Thank you for your work, I really think YumEx is the best package tool.
    The first thing i did after installing Fedora 10 is install yumex and remove PackageKit !.
