Zero Install: Run apps without having to install them

Zero Install is a decentralized cross-platform software-installation system available under the LGPL. It allows software developers to publish programs directly from their own web-sites, while supporting features familiar from centralized distribution repositories such as shared libraries, automatic updates and digital signatures. It is intended to complement, rather than replace, the operating system’s package management. 0install packages never interfere with those provided by the distribution.

What's new in this version:

  • Added support for download retrieval method
  • Fixed some bugs in Sync logic
  • Made some cache management operations more reliable
  • Minor UI tweaks
