Apper the package/apps manager based on PackageKit has got it’s 1.0.0 version on it’s 10th birthday!

Following the PackageKit-Qt 1.0.1 I’m now doing an Apper release to match it’s API, Apper source code got ported to Qt5/KF5 but not completed and using some kfsupport classes, now it’s code got modernized to C++11, new Qt connect syntax and no code depends on kfsupport, it is also properly using AppStream now, some performance improvements on the package model.

It’s now a stand alone application (no longer integrated in system settings), this was due 99% of it’s usage being by calling the apper executable and this helped fix a crash due it being a KCM module.

Feature wise I plan to add support to fwupd allowing users to update firmwares with a native tool, but time is short and Cutelyst 2 with HTTP 2 support is my top priority now, but help is welcome!
