About LibPak:
LibPak is a collection of the latest libraries that exist for BeOS, in one handy package. Why? So that you don't have to go hunting them down. ;)

LibPak is useful because it solves a few issues that people have with using BeOS and third party applications.

By packaging all of the libraries into one convenient, regularly updated package, you are assured that most of the applications you will ever install will run smoothly.

LibPak aims to update it's package in the following manner:
- Individual libraries that have been updated will be available on the LibPak homepage, every monday.
- The LibPak package will be released on BeBits on the first monday of every month.

With this in mind, you can be assured that for 99% of the applications that need a specific library, it will just work.

As for developers. It is our intention to get everyone onto the same playing field, so that when you build your application, we can -all- know that you are using the latest and greatest libraries, and there is no funny business going on. It is very unfortunate when a user downloads your application and it doesn't work because it was built against an old library. Please, if you want to help the user, and the BeOS Community, please try to keep up with the latest library changes when they happen.
Latest Version
Variation description:
User package contains dynamic libraries required by many applications and games.

Details about this version:
WARNING: This is BETA. If You have filedlg ( installed, You'll be able to change target folder for installation. Unfortunetly Uninstall script doesn't handle multiple installations yet - it will uninstall all installations from /boot partition.
Also backup creation doesn't handle multiple installations properly, so if You want to make several installations better backup /boot/home/config/settings/LibPak/ folder after each install :(
