Summary:apt-offline 0.9.0 released
Project:Offline APT Package Manager

I'm pleased to announce the new and first release for apt-offline, at version 0.9.0. (apt-offline was previously named pypt-offline)

apt-offline is an Offline APT Package Manager for APT based systems, i.e. mostly Debian and Debian derived distributions.
apt-offline can fully update/upgrade your disconnected Debian box without the need of connecting it to the network.

* It works by generating a signature of the disconnected box.
* You carry the signature to a net connected box running anything (Windows/Linux/Mac)
* apt-offline downloads all data as per the signature. This includes apt database, packages, bug reports. The data can be bundled to a single file to carry it easily on a USB stick
* The bundle file is all that is needed on the disconnected Debian box. Apt on this box will feel like everything was downloaded the traditional (apt-get update/upgrade) way.

While I'm working toward getting it packaged and included into Debian, I am looking for users who could test and provide feedback. I'm more keen on feedback on the interface and options/arguments you'd like to see.
