Re: New PackageKit and gnome-packagekit in F9 soon

2008/7/7 Richard Hughes <hughsient gmail com>:
I've built new builds of PackageKit and gnome-packagekit and moved
them into updates-testing. The new major version is hopefully much
better from a UI perspective and hopefully much more stable but is an
API break from 0.1.x.

The builds for F9 are here:


Please test these packages, and report any bugs on email (reply to this
thread please), rather than the admin update page. When we've got quite
a bit of testing and ironed out and regressions then I'll push to

>From a speed point of view it shouldn't be a lot quicker just yet. I've
spent most of last week profiling yum and working around different slow
paths in the API. All this work I've been doing in git master, but I'll
backport that to 0.2.x in good time as it's essentially the same as in
the 0.2.x branch.

For instance, the group list used to take 14 seconds on my machine, and
now completes in less than a tenth of a second using master. If you want
to test this new code, jump onto the packagekit mailing list and I'll
give you instructions on how to build master.



I've been running these for a while now and I see no stability or performance problems. So far they have survived installing/removing software and performing several system updates without issue. Excellent work Richard.
