After 6 months of fun working on the project in silence, Smart Package Manager was finally released.
As the README says:
The Smart Package Manager project has the ambitious objective of creating smart and portable algorithms for solving adequately the problem of managing software upgrading and installation. This tool works in all major distributions, and will bring notable advantages over native tools currently in use (APT, APT-RPM, YUM, URPMI, etc).
Some of the interesting features, which are covered in more detail in the README file:
- Smart transactions
- Multiple interfaces
- Support for several channel formats
- Priority handling
- Autobalancing mirror system
- Parallel downloading mechanism
- Flexible removable media support
Have fun! ;)
