RipDev.org finally posted a new version of Installer (first one in about a month or so) on their website.

This is a quote directly from their website front page that explains the new release…


Installer 4.0b8 is out (it’s been ready for a while and even included in the last PwnageTool but we were holding off to releasing it publically). Among notable features is the switch to libcurl from the stock Foundation URL loading classes, which means more lightweight CPU and memory footprint and, more importantly, resumable file transfers. The new beta also features a plethora of little fixes which we won’t extensively list here. Enjoy. We’ll be pushing out a 4.0 release soonish…

Well “more lightweight CPU and memory footprint” is definitely a good thing, but the resumable file transfers have already been present in Cydia for quite some time. So although I haven’t used Installer in a long time it looks as though they are just playing catch up to Cydia. Plus unless Installer has been VASTLY improved in this release then there is still no reason to use it due to the fact it is highly unstable, crashes frequently, and NO ONE supports it! I hate to be so against a program, but it is the most unused program I have on my phone due to how horrible it can be.
