Not much time has passed since we released Cnchi 0.10 yet we’re finishing our Cnchi 0.12 release.
We’ve been able to do many things in a short amount of time. New Cnchi 0.12 will have these improvements (these are already coded!):
- New “Summary” screen. Before accepting going on with your installation, Cnchi will show you what will install and which changes is going to do on your system. This screen is always shown, it doesn’t matter if you choose automatic or advanced installation.
Better managment of package conflicts.
Calculate package list and its metalinks BEFORE partitioning. This way, if some package is missing Cnchi will tell you and fail, but it won’t touch your disk. You will be able to fix the issue (fix mirrorlist, change package name in packages.xml, …) and try again without rebooting. This has needed a lot of work as Cnchi was not designed to do this when we coded it.
Oh, we do not desire to make a lot of changes, so there are a lot of enhancements that will be postponed until 0.14
What’s left? Basically a hardware module fix for broadcom wifi drivers. It seems that sometimes broadcom-wl and/or b43-firmware are not installed. Once this is fixed we will be ready to start testing Cnchi 0.12
I’ll try to keep you posted of our progress.
EDIT: It will have a new feature that will install Steam and PlayOnLinux, thanks to @Wyn
