Kurt Pfeifle (pipitas): klik service gaining new features (adding some more user friendliness)

Filed under
Software

probono klik's has added a few cool hacks to the klik server. One is that all package recipes which are auto-created from the Debian repositories and klik's "server side apt" do now display version numbers. So if you browse the klik recipe repository, you'll now see how much net load you'll get in a minute.

Another one is that he's now working on is showing automatically created dependency graphs for each recipe. Our server-side apt does automatically resolve dependencies anyway, and this kind of graphviz-created illustrations will be available to users and klik recipe developers to see which other packages and libraries an application does draw in and why.

Canonical fixed the Spectre Variant 2 security vulnerability last month on January 22, but only for 64-bit Ubuntu installations.
