Cydia lead developer Jay Freeman tweeted that Cydia 1.1 had hit the repos.

Saurik gave the following details about Cydia 1.1:

  • the ability to run and operate Activator, libstatusbar, and SimulatedKeyEvents while Cydia is running
  • an overall speed improvement, including the "Loading Changes" dialog
  • "much less" memory usage
  • a more advanced search mechanism with a new relevancy algorithm
  • better management of broken repositories

Here's the quick list of about Cydia:

  • Multitasking
  • Leaving Mobile Substrate On When Cydia is Open
  • Better Looking Interface and Backup Option
  • Confusion With the Term "Changes"
  • Speed. It's now more than 1.0.3366 by a good margin, which itself was faster than 1.0.3222 by an even larger chasm.
  • Loading Times. Cydia 1.0.3366 moves the loading of changes until after you click the tab, which makes it more evidence how much time is being spent on this feature (which itself is, again, faster on 1.1)."
  • Memory Usage. espite Cydia 1.1 continuing to attempt to juggle tens of thousands of items in memory, thanks to Cytore, it uses much less memory than ever before. Other optimizations have been made, as with every version of Cydia, in order to decrease the memory usage of the app as a whole. Additionally, and in particular, Cydia 1.1 is much more conscientious of memory warnings, and attempts to throw out as much state as possible during these events.
  • Advanced Search
  • Error Messages. "Errors from Cydia don't come from Cydia. If you type a URL into Cydia for a broken repository, that repository is going to be low-quality and is going to cause you problems. If it's offline, Cydia is going to tell you it is offline, and if it is malformed Cydia is going to get angry about that.
  • "Rate" and "Review" Sections
  • Improved Compatibility Listings
  • Removal of Dead Content
  • Clarified Install Requirements
  • Repo Management
