Zero Install Injector 2.6

A user-oriented decentralised software distribution for Linux operating systems.
Zero Install Injector is an open source project that makes it possible for users to install software easily and without the need for root privileges.

It takes the URL of a program's interface description and chooses suitable versions of the program and all of its dependencies (also identified by URLs) according to the user's policy settings (eg. "stable", "testing", "minimal network use", etc).

Among its features we can mention automatic updates, dependency handling, security (GPG signatures), the ability to allow anyone to distribute software (decentralised).

Zero Install Injector is a cross-platform software installation system that supports Linux, Mac OS X, Windows and UNIX operating systems.

What's New in This Release:
  • 0install 2.6 completes the transition from Python to OCaml. There is no remaining Python code in 0install and, therefore, no need to have Python installed in order to build or run it. However, there are some problems using the GTK plugin on OS X - see the thread for details. There's also another blog post in my series for people wanting to get up to speed on OCaml: Polymorphism for Beginners.
