Release Notes: Secure sharing of downloads between users is now easier to set up. The default main loop now uses GLib, making it easier to integrate with other systems. Various bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: A typo that prevented the program from starting on non-Debian-based systems was fixed. Several minor bugs in the handling of natively installed packages were fixed.
Release Notes: Integration with distribution packaging systems has been improved: packages installed using apt-get can be considered as candidates alongside the Zero Install versions. Adding support for other package managers should be fairly simple. Alternatively, packaging systems can now register their packages with Zero Install. The man command can now work with Zero Install aliases. Various bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: A utility for adding Zero Install launchers to the GNOME and KDE menus was added. GPG keys can now be trusted for individual domains, rather than globally. The interface between the launcher and the installer GUI has been changed to allow running the installer with higher privileges than the program being run. Support for tracing and debugging programs run through Zero Install has been improved.
Release Notes: Downloads can now be automatically and safely shared between multiple users. Checking for new versions of programs happens in the background, and only displays a notification if updates are available. Solaris support has been improved by no longer requiring the GNU versions of tar and cpio. Improvements to the GTK interface provide an easy way to submit bug reports.
Release Notes: Support for lzma archives was added. If run with sufficient permission, downloads are now stored in the system cache rather than in the user's cache. The preferences now have their own dialog box. Python 2.5 is now supported. Various minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: The GUI now has a Compile button to generate a binary from a source package. More complex version numbers are supported (e.g. "1.2-rc3"). New --before and --not-before command line arguments can be used to restrict the version selected easily. Cabinet archives can be extracted. Extensive epydocs for the Python API are now available on the Web site.
Release Notes: Support for compiling binary packages from source using the new 0compile utility was added. A bug which prevented running a program while updates to it were being fetched was fixed.
Release Notes: A command to copy a download from an untrusted user (checking that the digest is correct) has been added. This also allows sys-admins to add user downloads to the shared cache safely. Non-ASCII characters in interface files are now supported. If no version is available (e.g. because none are cached and you're offline) then it now switches to graphical mode automatically. Many error messages have been improved.
Release Notes: Support for extracting from zip and autopackage format archives was added. When multiple GPG keys need to be confirmed, the dialog boxes are now queued correctly. The packaging documentation has been extended to show how to publish Inkscape's binary RPM with Zero Install so that it will be installable without root access and will work on other systems (such as Debian).
