Time for more Octopi: 0.1.3!

Thanks to the awesome feedback from the guys at Manjaro Linux Forum, there is a new Octopi version available: 0.1.3.

This release fixes ** lots of bugs **, including a nasty one which prevented kdesu users from getting percentage feedback from transactions (a special thanks goes to Bersil and Holmes). It also improves security in transaction execution code.

Users can now take advantage of context menus in ‘Transaction’ and ‘Files’ tabs to remove/expand/collapse items, open/edit files as well as opening selected directories using the available file manager/terminal;

There is also improved support for dark Qt themes. You can take a look at Screenshots section.

Grab the latest code at github and enjoy!


Back to 21st february this year, there was another open source project inception. The given name – Octopi, a tribute to Pacman (the arcade game), was to make everyone remember the main goal of the project: to make a straightforward frontend to a top quality package manager: Pacman!

Right now you can grab a copy of it at GitHub.

Hope you all like it!
