- Brought back the graphical system upgrade;
- New outdated packages notification at statusbar: for pacman and yaourt;

DOWNLOAD IT HERE! We wanna say a HUGE thank you to all the guys who helped it out. You know who you are! But in case you don’t, please look HERE and also HERE
New outdated package status at statusbar.
You can now install optional package dependencies, when available. Ctrl+A selects/unselects all!
Octopi supports 31 languages at the moment. This one is hungarian!
As some users requested: the graphical system upgrade was brought back!
I enjoy reading as much as coding. But physical books are expensive, eco unfriendly and take too much space.
That’s why I think ebook readers are so amazing: they give you access to cheaper and lighter books while saving you lots of precious space.
Unfortunately here in Brazil they cost twice the US price: around 210 dollars!
So, if you like Octopi and want to help me buy an ebook reader, you can donate here: http://sourceforge.net/donate/index.php?group_id=186459

We are working hard to release the next stable version to you.
But right now we have a little problem: new features bring new text to be translated! So, if you have some time to spare in an open source project, please access our translation site.
Your help is priceless! Thank you.
