    well, just thought i'd let everyone know that cydia finally supports the queuing of packages so that you can download multiple ones at a time instead of having to download them all seperately
    to queue a package is simple

    1) find the package you are looking for and select "install"

    2) simply hit "cancel" instead of "confirm"

    3) two buttons will pop up, one will say "continue queuing" and the other "cancel and clear"
    the "cancel and clear" will not add the package to your queue and proceed clear your queue

    4) select "continue queuing" and proceed to do this with any other packages you want to download

    5) you will now notice that a notification balloon has appeared over the "manage" tab at the bottom of the page which has "Q'd" in it, to show you now have packages queued

    6) select the "manage" tab and in the top right select "queue"

    7) you can now select "confirm" or "cancel" depending on whether you are done selecting packages to download or not

    note - if you hit cancel form this page, the same "continue queuing" and "cancel and clear" message appears

    well, just thought i'd inform everyone as its a feature i've felt cydia has been lacking since there have been enough packages to want to download more than one at a time

    enjoy!

    It's sort of hidden in there. He was working on it, then i guess got side tracked with Cydia Store, so it's not fully implemented (I think).

    ah, well, i guess we'll just have to wait and see
    as far as i can see though, the only thing he could really add would be to delete specific items from your queue
