Cydia Gets an Essential Update - Speed Increases and Error Handling
It appears last night that Saurik has updated APT, which now has an optimized cache generator and has become more error tolerant in repository parsing. This means less error screens when connecting to repositories that might have an error at that particular moment, which used to end up causing Cydia users a ton of grief, sometimes even crashing them out of Cydia. This update should help correct some of that.
While its nothing extremely heavy hitting with this update, it is highly recommended you update to gain some additional performance from Cydia. "Reloading" screens seem to move along much faster, and I have yet to see any repository errors. Saurik says this is a 7x speed increase! Not sure the specifics, but as far as I'm told, the update provides a speed increase of 7x.
Head on over to Cydia and download the new APT updates. It should just put up, like the image above.

isn't there a package that removes the "reloading" screen? i saw it somewhere, was like on EDITED or something. anyone know what i'm talking about?
also, it dosen't block sources randomly. (like the one with 8 icon dock)

Saurik used to be like Gandalf the Grey riding into Hobbitown to give the cheering Hobbits a look at his flashy new spells.
Now he's like that old, dirty, crazy guy that squats in a hut with two goats on the side of a hill. We don't know whether to ask him for a bit of the old magic or just forget about him.
I'm not exactly sure what I'm trying to say... oh yeah, I remember now: "Fix Winterboard video wallpaper you dirty old wizard!"

From Saurik's twitter:
I also uploaded a new version of APT I've been working on: it has an optimized cache generator and more error tolerant repository parsingHe who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
