DESKTOP --
Developers behind Antergos, the Arch-based Linux distribution designed for an easy desktop experience, are working on a new package manager UI/assistant codenamed Poodle.

Antergos developers have been working on a new package assistant with a clean and modern UI that integrates with the desktop. This yet-to-be-formally-named assistant is written in Python and uses HTML/CSS/JS for its user-interface that's rendered then by Qt WebEngine.

If you're an Antergos Linux user and want to learn more, see this blog post and the video embedded below. This new package assistant isn't quite ready yet for beta testing.
