Summary: Graphical front-end for APT
Synaptic is a graphical front-end for APT (Advanced Package Tool).
It attempts to be a lot easier to use than other existing APT front-ends.

Instead of using trees to display packages, Synaptic is heavily based on a
powerful package filtering system. That greatly simplifies the interface
while giving a lot more flexibility to browse through very long package

- Enabled the dialog to show changelogs. (In ALT, they are in the index,
  unlike in Debian, where they have to be downloaded separately.)
  Find it in the top menu: "Package" -> "Download Changelog". (TODO/patches
  are welcome: Place it along the package properties like dependencies.)

- NMU: added russian tranlation from
- Thanks gosts_87@ for creating bugs and trying to translate (ALT bug 42843)
Dec. 8, 2021 Ivan Zakharyaschev 0.58-alt28
- Adapted to the new API with custom callbacks introduced
  in libapt-0.5.15lorg2-alt74. (Surprisingly, the call that had to be adapted
  is a method "private" to the apt library used here by means of a hack;
  so libapt shouldn't really bother to provide a compatibility method.)
