Debian Package Search is a GUI for searching packages and showing package information.
Debian Package Search is aimed to help you search for the packages you need. It should make the task of searching a pleasant experience.
Additionally it offers a convenient way to display the information available for a package. Originally I designed it to find a single package where you have a clear imagination of what you want, and it is really good for this.
But it can also be used to simply browse the packages available. Perhaps there is something in the database you simply must have.
Debian Package Search provides a single interface for different types of search including a full text search (apt-cache search) and searching by categories (debtags search).
Debtags is a new approach for categorizing the Debian packages developed by Enrico Zini. Once you have found an interesting package you can install from within the user interface.
install/remove multiple files
look into sticky search
allow purging for remove
allow searching "whole words only"
create a .desktop file
switch to libapt-front
fix showing "normal" files again (like README)
What's New in This Release:
suggest actually shows suggested packages now (and no longer pre-depends) 2006-10-31
added build dependency on libept >= 0.4.4 which no longer throws an exception if there is no user .debtags directory available (Closes: #395568),
also added dependency on apt >= 0.6.46.1, which should remedy failures in loading the apt-plugin
