New on the market: Fresh software in the repos

I thought I just open a thread in which we can introduce new software which has (just recently) hit the (wheezy/sid) repos.

Here for example is dwb, a light webkit browser (similar to conkeror, luakit, xxxterm) with vim keybinds.

tZGwxYQ

apt-get install dwb

Homepage: http://portix.bitbucket.org/dwb/

Edit: In case anybody wonders - the original thread was in Off Topic, and VastOne suggested per PM to move it to this section.

Re: New on the market: Fresh software in the repos

Good thread Machine!

Old argument, but SliM vs LightDM is still a good one..

Gonna have to check out dwb


SpaceFM is what I have been using as a file manager for a while, it is quite fast, stable and configurable

Re: New on the market: Fresh software in the repos

nice thread. quick question: how do you know about new packages entering the repos? is there a RSS feed or mailing list you follow or something?

Re: New on the market: Fresh software in the repos

There's a debian-owned page: http://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html
I suppose most go into experimental first.

I see no need to add "What's off the market" thread, but if you haven't noticed wine is absent from the wheezy repositories. smile

I thought wine 1.5.3 was the latest unstable version, so should that be in the Experimental repo?

Re: New on the market: Fresh software in the repos

There are two new games of note that have crept into the Wheezy repositories: Unknown Horizons and 0ad. Both show great promise and are pretty fun right now as is.

Nifty, I have been wanting to give 0ad a try for ages. Yesterday, someone suggested I try openRA and I lost a good few hours. It's not in the Wheezy repo, but there is a deb on the website.

Re: New on the market: Fresh software in the repos

Dwb is just great! I think at the moment even better than all the other minimal ones like unuzbl, luash*t, pornTerm etc. It has adblocking out of the box. I even thought to open an entire thread about this little webbrowser when it hit Sid.

Re: New on the market: Fresh software in the repos

@Kwin hater: Nope, I know what you mean, as a Spectrer tester/user I already tried Xombrero, the new name of it and I found it the best before dwb. Text configuration is really great and not some Lua crazyness. But, no adblocker sucks and there is no adsuck in the Debian repos and I never was a fan of additional apps for adblocking. Privoxy was also not my glass of beer in the end. smile Really nothing beats Fireweasel's addon for that purpose.

I only use my keyboard these days and Xxxterm's hinting mode is not perfectly usable as is Vimperator/Pentadactyl. Luakit looks and works good but Lua is a pain in the a** if you need more tweaking, though the basic things are easy. Never tried Jumanji with my aversion towards compiling except for DWM. big_smile

In the end Icefire is still the best for me.

Ah, DeaDBeeF is now available in Wheezy/Sid, no hunting anymore. Of course, it is in the Multimedia repo.

Re: New on the market: Fresh software in the repos

The good adblocker? All the cool kids use a heavily modified /etc/hosts file (MVPS) to keep ads where they belong: at 0.0.0.0 wink
