Open Packages Platform: Keypirinha is glad to welcome @psistorm as a project member! He is currently working on developing the online side of the project in order to make it more community-oriented. That includes Keypirinha‘s website and more importantly a packages management platform to allow users to easily search, list, install, update and uninstall official and third-party packages. Third-party developers will be able to share their package with the community by registering their GitHub or Bitbucket repository.
Catalog sub-system: Several features regarding the Catalog sub-system have been requested by users and have been hanging in the issue tracker for quite a while now (issues #22, #52 and #60). Altogether, they imply deep changes under the hood and require some time to be implemented. It is slowly making its way.
