There is an update to Installer, bringing it to version 3.1. I only noticed one new feature with the update but, it is HUGE! You are now able to search for applications! A search bar has been added to the top of the Installer. It searches within each category. If you are in All Packages, it will search within All Packages. If you are in Recent Packages, it will search within Recent Packages. It also updates the search as you type in the title of the app, giving you the most relevant apps based on each letter you enter. It is really cool! I also noticed that the applications now have headings as well. This makes it a little more organized. Overall…very cool update!
Update: After looking around…I also noticed that the update to Installer allows more then three lines in the description field. Check out the screenshots below…one is of the new version of Kate before the Installer update and the other is after. There are four lines in the description field where it used to be cut off.
