Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.5 Released, Features PPA Purge Integration

A new version of Ubuntu Tweak has been released today: 0.5.5. There’s no official announcement yet, but the new version is now available in the Ubuntu Tweak stable PPA.

Looking and the BZR changelog, there’s only one new major feature in Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.5: PPA Purge (which was also available in the WebUpd8 PPA by the way), which you can now use from within Ubuntu Tweak.

PPA Purge can remove a PPA and downgrade all the packages you’ve installed from that PPA to the official version in the Ubuntu repositories. An example: suppose you add the c-korn/vlc PPA and install VLC 1.1.1 but you want to go back to VLC 1.0.6 which is available in the Ubuntu official repositories. Using PPA Purge, the c-korn/vlc PPA will be removed and VLC 1.1.1 will be downgraded to version 1.0.6 (there’s one catch though: make sure you don’t have any other PPAs with VLC 1.1.1 or 1.1.0 and so on).
