LM 18.3 Software Manager

Post by Portreve » Sat Dec 30, 2017 9:11 pm

The only change between .2 and .3 which caught me by surprise is the Software Manager.

On the plus side, I find that it no longer screws up and loses its connection to the active network connection (as did all prior versions of Software Manager I've ever used on LM) but on the meh side, now I can only install one thing at a time, and there's no way to queue multiple things for installation.

What's with the Apple App Store-like front page UI? That seems a bit... odd. Also, why is it missing so many application preview images?
Everything is in hand. With this tapestry... and with patience, there is nothing one cannot achieve.

Maybe they figured most people who want to do those things would use Synaptic instead.
