WingetUI, which is a third-party GUI utility tool for managing CLI package managers like Winget or Scoop, received its latest update a couple of days ago. The new update, version 2.1.0, brings performance improvements related to package imports and parsing as well as CLI outputs, adds a couple of major source-related upgrades, like source filtering as well as support for custom sources, and more.

There are new special icons for installed, blacklisted, and upgradable packages. The app now also comes digitally signed so Microsoft Defender and other anti-malware products should no longer block it. You can find the full release notes below:

  • .NET Tool package manager is now fully supported in WingetUI
