As promised, Jay Freeman aka saurik has rolled out an update for Cydia, giving it a flatter and a more modern look.
You should be able to see the new look when you launch Cydia as it does not need an update. If not, hit Reload in the top right corner to get the new look.
saurik had mentioned that he would be releasing an update few days back when he responded to comex’s decision to work on a replacement for the Cydia Substrate for iMods.
saurik has also said that he plans to make some payment related changes, though it doesn’t look like he has rolled out those changes yet.
It is a welcome change as it has been quite a while since Cydia was updated. The most striking change is on the home page, with some minor tweaks on other pages.

Here’s a video walkthrough of the new version of Cydia:
It looks a lot cleaner, and more modern. Let me know what you think of the new design. Please drop me a line in the comments if you’ve discovered any other changes.
