Offline Ubuntu update tool ‘Keryx’ hits 1.0 release

Offline Ubuntu update tool ‘Keryx’ has hit version 1.0.

‘Keryx’ allows users with limited internet connectivity the ability to maintain, update and install new applications on their Ubuntu install using a USB key and access to a net-enabled computer elsewhere – regardless if it’s running Windows.

Then, when back at your Ubuntu computer just plug the USB stick in, load up Keryx and use the ‘Install’ button to install and apply any downloaded packages and updates.

New features

The latest release sees a new tabbed layout, with the home tab even offering the option to download ‘premade profiles’ – profiles are lists of packages that match your Ubuntu version – from profiles.keryxproject.org.

Also rocking out in 1.0 is a new download tab and a simplified package list for finding new applications to install.

Download

Keryx 1.0 can be downloaded for both Windows and Linux @ keryxproject.org
