Y PPA Manager 0.0.8.1 has been released today, bringing support for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot and quite a few bug fixes.
Y PPA Manager features:

Install Firefox 5 Beta in Ubuntu from the Firefox Next PPA

Not long ago Mozilla changed the release cycle of Firefox, so that major new versions (Firefox 5, 6 and so on) will be released every 2-3 months. Currently, the latest alpha release is Firefox 6 Aurora, while the latest beta development version is Firefox Beta 5, which has made it into the Firefox Next PPA already.

Install The Beautiful Bluebird GTK + Metacity Theme In Ubuntu

After many comments about it, I've decided to make a separate post as it seems everybody wants to know what theme this is even though there was an announcement on ppa.webupd8.org.

How To Install Firefox 4 In Ubuntu 10.04 / 10.10 Via PPA Repository - The Proper Way

Firefox 4 (stable) will be released soon and I though I'd let you know how to install it in Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 - the proper way.

 

Announcing The WebUpd8 Themes Ubuntu PPA

There are a lot of amazing GTK / Metacity / Emerald / Icon themes on Gnome-Look and Deviant Art but to get the latest version you must constantly check the site and manually download and install the new theme so I though it would be nice to set up an Ubuntu repository for the themes that I (and you) like and do not have a PPA.

Launchpad Finally Gets PPA Usage Stats; Might Also Get A PPA "Heat" Metric

The Launchpad API was updated yesterday, finally bringing PPA statistics. For now, the stats can only be accessed by using a Python script, but they will probably be implemented on the actual website soon, especially since Mark Shuttleworth is also interested in these stats. He actually posted a comment on Launchpad, asking for a "heat" metric for PPAs:

Install Hamachi2 And Haguichi (GUI For Hamachi, Now Available In A PPA) In Ubuntu

Firstly, an introduction so you'll know what this is about:

Public Ubuntu Font Family PPA For Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx And 9.10 Karmic Koala

The Ubuntu Font Family has been made default in Ubuntu 10.10, it can be downloaded from Launchpad and there are download links available on http://font.ubuntu.com too, yet the Ubuntu Font PPA is still private which makes it difficult for those not using Ubuntu 10.10 to stay up to date with the latest versions of the font.

 

So I've decided to make a PPA [...]

PPA Purge Added To The Official Ubuntu 10.10 Repositories, New Version Works With Linux Mint And Other Ubuntu Derivatives

Great news for those of you who use a lot of PPAs: PPA Purge has been added to the official Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat repositories.

A quick reminder of what's PPA Purge:

gThumb 2.11.5, Minitunes 0.1.1 And Subtitle Editor 0.37.1 Updated In The WebUpd8 PPA

gThumb 2.11.5 was released 2 days ago and is now available in the WebUpd8 PPA. New features in this version include:

PPA Purge Now Available Via GetDeb

So what is PPA Purge? Well, imagine you add a PPA repository which messes up a lot of stuff on your computer. PPA Purge can be used (with a single command) to remove that PPA, remove everything installed from that PPA and reinstall the original packages from the official Ubuntu repositories.

Fixed Ubuntu Light Themes Metacity PPA [Lucid, Karmic, Jaunty]

I just posted about a PPA which has a fixed Light Themes package for Lucid, but that PPA doesn't have packages for Karmic and Jaunty and also that package replaces the original Light Themes.

Mohegan asked if we could upload a fixed light-themes package in the WebUpd8 PPA and so we did, but we tried to please as many people as we can, so:

Ubuntu Lucid Light Themes (Radiance and Ambiance) Available In A PPA

Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) Light Themes (Radiance and Ambiance) - click me if you haven't seen the themes yet - will probably be updated lots of times until Lucid Lynx is released.
