Default apt-offline - 1.0 Released

Hello World.

I am very pleased to announce apt-offline, version 1.0.

This release, with it, adds a Graphical User Interace to apt-offline.

Big thanks to Abhishek Mishra and Manish Sinha who did all the
development work to make this GUI happen. Apart from the GUI, there are
a bunch of bug fixes in this release. Some more details with screenshots
can be seen at [4]



What is apt-offline ?

apt-offline is an Offline APT Package Manager
.
apt-offline can fully update and upgrade an APT based distribution without
connecting to the network, all of it transparent to apt
.
apt-offline can be used to generate a signature on a machine (with no
network).
This signature contains all download information required for the apt
database system. This signature file can be used on another machine
connected to the internet (which need not be a Debian box and can even
be running windows) to download the updates.
The downloaded data will contain all updates in a format understood by
apt and this data can be used by apt-offline to update the non-networked
machine.
.
apt-offline can also fetch bug reports and make them available offline



apt-offline is available at [2] and the latest 1.0 release can be
downloaded here [3]
