OSNews, Generic OSes 0install 2.0 is out today. Zero Install is a decentralised cross-platform software installation system, allowing software developers to publish programs directly from their own websites, while still supporting shared libraries, automatic updates, dependency handling and digital signatures. It complements, rather than replaces, the OS' package management. Departing from its traditional use of installing desktop applications, many of the new features were driven by requirements from the Ryppl project, which is using 0install as the package manager in a modular build system for C++ projects.

RE[5]: Looks interesting

Thanks for the mirror, but I saw that version 1.14 was there just 1 hour ago and hasn't been downloaded by anyone (you put it there especially for me?)

All newer versions seem only for Linux, so it seems clear where the focus of this project is.

And again, a zero-installer that requires an installer and cannot even provide that simply screams "stay away, we don't want you as a user"
