Installer 4.0b6 and New Updated Repository Code
Update is in the Updated Category in Installer
Post From ripdev.org
Proudly presenting you the new beta of Installer - 4.0b6.
New and changed:
* Uninstall now works correctly.
* Fixed a lot of locking issues especially with custom HTML info pages.
* Updated the Categories and Tasks icons so they are less ugly.
* Fixed a bug with multiple copies of Installer appearing in Installed Packages under some circumstances.
* Installer will now correctly check and prompt for an update of itself.
Things to Know if you want to make your own repo.
Also, to accompany the Installer release, a new edition of the Repository code is up. Grab it here: repo-r1114.zip
What's new in the repo code?
* Added an option to ping the Installer search server so it reindexes your repository. The ping occurs during regenerate.php run.
* Much better handling of ZIP archives, since this is what most people had troubles with. It now attempts to determine which way to use to unzip your files (PEAR::ZipArchive, zip_open or shell_exec("unzip")). Please note that we didn't test zip_open piece of the code as we don't have a server with that plugin compiled in PHP.
* DOMDocument::load() should work under PHP4. We hope.
* Slightly better handling of the multiple versions of the same package.
How to upgrade? Simply replace regenerate.php with the new one, and add new configuration parameters from config.inc.default.php to your config.inc.php. There are two: REPOSITORY_URL, that should have a full path to your repo (with a trailing slash), and ZIP_CMDLINE_PATH (only add this if needed). Refer to config.inc.default.php for the descriptions and copy-paste goodness.
Don't forget to regenerate your repositories once upgraded, and also don't forget to put 2.0.2 into POSSIBLE_FIRMWARE_VERSIONS array so people on the new firmware can see your packages!

Is it neccessary to do it this way? Can't we just update the rip dev repository and upgrade through there? It seems to be working fine for me.
I am assuming that other info is if you want to host your own repository??

Installer for has been public. Its so we can all test and get the bugs out. To answer more questions: you can find the update in the Updated part of Installer.
For those wanting to make a repo: The files are located in the first post where it says files here. There is another post to help you make a repo in this News forum.

how the heck do you uninstall? I still haven't figured that out yet.

scrolling through lists is still painfully slow... also not sure why they aren't using any of the built-in list functions so that I can easily scroll to specific letters.

Yes, I agree. The icons are nice, but it takes time to load them, and when you go to all packages, you get all of the same (but different) "carrier bundles"! The new version is better, it just polls all of the repositories for icons on the packages section (I just had 20 tasks come up while I was scrolling for the first time). We'll see.....
Not to dis the dev team - I love them, but they have a LONG way to go to catch Cydia (used to be the other way a round)! Installer-wise, I mean. Dev team OWNS (pwns) everything else!
