Installer 5.0.3 released

This update features major performance and UI improvements, as well as introducing several new features.​

New Features
Optional URL schemes hooking
. Installer no longer automatically hook's Cydia's URL scheme. If you would like Installer to do this, you can enable it in settings.
Followed developers new packages. When a developer you follow releases a new package, you will see the newly released packages rather than all packages by that developer.
Follow repositories. You can now follow your favourite repositories. When they release a new package you will be notified via a banner.

Major improvements
This update also features some major performance improvements, especially regarding depictions. The depiction parsing class was rewritten from the ground up and fixes multiple issues the previous version had.
This update also prevents downloaded .debs from staying on the device, even after successful installation.
