The GNOME development team has announced a few days ago that the first development release towards GNOME PackageKit 3.12 is available for download and testing, bringing several new features and bug fixes.GNOME PackageKit 3.11.1 modernizes a few Glade files, translates the AppData file, and removes the gpk-distro-upgrade, gpk-install-catalog, gpk-install-mime-type, gpk-install-package-name, gpk-install-provide-file binaries, as well as the Python helper functions.
Moreover, GNOME PackageKit 3.11.1 now uses 16:9 screenshots in the AppData files, displays the whole list in the window when showing repositories, fixes the AppData name to be less generic, no longer passes relative paths to the session interface, no longer links to UPower, no longer supports ConsoleKit, removes EggDBusMonitor, and no longer uses the DesktopDB in gpk-application, and deprecated GTK symbols.
The gnome-settings-daemon schema is no longer set in the prefs program, a “Check now” button is no longer displayed in prefs, and a critical warning is no longer displayed when trying to remove a missing GSource. The following translations have been updated in this development version of GNOME PackageKit: Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan (Valencian), Czech, Galician, Italian, Slovenian, Spanish, Tajik, Traditional Chinese, and Turkish.
