A message to the iPhone third-party software community from

Due to the high demand of compatibility between package managers, an open source core and a centralized package management format and system; Nullriver Software and the developers of the PXL Package System will be working in co-operation to bring you a more streamlined, more open and more convenient package installation system for the iPhone with many new and exciting features. This new solution will be based on the current AppTapp Installer, with improvements as suggested by the PXL developers and Nullriver.
The core of the AppTapp Installer will become a Framework (or library) and will be open sourced. This means that other applications will be able to interface with the AppTapp library in order to manage packages and their metadata. Further, this will ensure that iPhones everywhere will remain in good integrity and that packages will not conflict with one-another because of the inconvenience of having to deal with two or more package management systems.
The new AppTap Installer will be replacing both current package management solutions with a superior and very flexible feature set. Documentation for the formats, repositories and associated code will be available on the official AppTapp homepage (here). We are hard at work making this happen and will keep you updated as we progress.
Thank you,
Nullriver Software and the PXL Development Team
