Installer 4.0 Beta 5 Released

RiP Dev has released a Installer 4.0 Beta 5 with many bug fixes and visual enhancements. You download the latest beta by refreshing the RiP Dev source in Installer 4.0 and then installing the update.

What's new?
* Many visual enhancements and fixes in regards to source and packages display.
* Fixed an issue with failing installs with dependencies under some circumstances.
* Fixed a bug causing package information to be displayed incorrectly (size 0 bytes) on the first access, or when the custom information HTML page (such as packages from Big Boss' repository) was not displayed.
* When updating a package, and one of its dependencies also has an update available, the dependency will be updated as well.
* The package icons will only be downloaded when on the Wi-Fi to help you save on bandwidth.
* The repositories are being refreshed upon launch so you always stay on the bleeding edge with the updates. This is exeperimental behavior and we're not yet sure it will make it to the final release.
* Fixed a script command Confirm that was returning invalid button index for the "OK" button.
* Lots and lots of both cosmetic and internal application core fixes that improve the overall performance, presentation and stability of the application.
