Finally – apt 1.0
The big news for this version is that we included a new “apt” binary that combines the most commonly used commands from apt-get and apt-cache. The commands are the same as their apt-get/apt-cache counterparts but with slightly different configuration options.
Currently the apt binary supports the following commands:
list: which is similar to dpkg list and can be used with flags like
--installed or --upgradable.
- search: works just like apt-cache search but sorted alphabetically.
- show: works like apt-cache show but hide some details that people are less likely to care about (like the hashes). The full record is still available via apt-cache show of course.
- update: just like the regular apt-get update with color output enabled.
