    Not sure if or how many of you were aware of this already, but I discovered this by accident.

    It appears Saurik is working on adding a 'download queue' feature in Cydia. As a matter of fact this is already partially functional in the latest version.

    To use this feature, select a Cydia package from whatever category you're browsing then press its' 'install' button at the top. The next screen you see asks you to 'confirm.' While on this screen you will see that if you select the 'cancel' option, Cydia now offers you an option to 'add the package to the download queue.'

    Now I believe Saurik has not 'made any fuzz' about this yet, as the feature is still far from perfect. Ex. If 1 package fails to download for whatever reason this ruins your entire queue and you must start all over again. (Makes me have nightmares about the 1.X firmware's installer package queue feature when it first came out. :) )

    I believe Saurik said it was due to 'limitations with APT...' I'm sure he'll eventually figure it out. Go Saurik!! :D
