Hi Bernard,

Now you must open a category and start typing on the hardware
keyboard. Now there is no way to search using touchscreen-only AFAIK,
and ability to limit your search to titles or descriptions is gone.

In general I find it to be MUCH faster and easier to just go to xterm
and do "apt-cache search foo" rather than deal with application
manager and all of its monumental slowness.
