Hello Everyone!

It's been a long time since you've heard from us. As is the case for everyone, this year has not been an easy one for our team, and several team members were quite busy with their personal lives, and because of that, Installer 5.1 took longer than we expected and wanted.
We are however very proud to announce that Installer 5.1 Public BETA is available for everyone today.

What is Installer 5.1?

Installer 5.1 is a complete redesign and a major backend rewrite, which included several new features and fixing a whole lot of bugs.
Nearly everything you see has been completely rethought and redesigned.
While designing, we asked for feedback from our users, and made changes based on their feedback.

Installer BETA currently supports iOS 13 and higher. Upcoming releases will add back support for iOS 12.

Known issues & Limitations (Read this carefully!)

High Importance: Installer will reset its database.
5.1 uses a new database which is incompatible with the database older versions of Installer used. A graceful migration is not possible, so Installer will reset its own database. This means that the sources you added in Installer will be reset (removed), as well as the followed developers. This has absolutely no implications on your jailbreak at all, it will NOT delete sources from other package managers, nor will it delete tweaks. You can always import your sources from other package managers.

Medium Importance: Package Backups are currently disabled. Repository backups do work.
We are reworking the backup system, and until this has been completed, the function has been disabled.

Low Importance: This is the first public beta release.
While we've spent a lot of time refining Installer and fixing all bugs we came across, bugs and crashes are to be expected. If you do find a bug or a crash, please report them on our GitHub issue tracker!

[Potentially solved] Low Importance: Local installation bug.
If you install a deb with version 1.1 locally (via SSH, Filza, etc) and then later uninstall it, Installer will still see the 1.1. version as being available, and will suggest an update for it, even though the version is not available on any repository. We are currently changing the way updates are detected to fix this.
