Here’s a look at the changes in Cydia Installer 1.1.28:

● Cydia Now Users APT 1.14~b
This is a major update to the core package management logic used by Cydia. This
library, which is shared with Linux distributions such as Debian and Ubuntu, is
an industry standard, which Cydia has been excited to share. For purposes of
performance and reliability, Cydia had a number of patches to the (rather old)
copy of APT it had been using. It turns out APT’s upstream has been paying
attention, and was excited to have us update. 

The big thing to know about this change is that there are a handful of
repositories that are simply broken, and older versions of Cydia failed to
notice. We’ve had this build of Cydia in a “public beta” now for an
entire month, which has been a lot of time to get the more important of these
to fix their corrupt metadata files. However, you may still run into warnings:
you should remove the repositories which are broken, and it is not a bug in
Cydia that you see warnings.

● Cydia is Now a 64-bit Process
Cydia is now compiled for ARM64. While this offers Cydia very little direct
advantages (and probably comes at a performance penalty), this avoids a
misleading dialog box from Apple and also happened to work around an issue on
iOS 10 where no links in Cydia could be clicked. Note that this means that any
extensions installed to modify Cydia will now need to be recompiled for 64-bit
as well.

● Support for iOS 10
There are at least a handful of users using iOS 10 due to the new Yalu
jailbreak: this version of Cydia has a couple minor modifications to make this
work better for them. For those worried about Cydia on older systems: the vast
majority of users are using iOS 7, 8, and 9 (in nearly equal percentages), and
Cydia continues to support even older versions of iOS, so do not feel concerned
about updating (I still haven’t updated from my iOS 8.4 primary phone).

● Some Random Bug Fixes
iAdam1n reported an issue where removing a repository could cause Cydia to not
provide a UI to return to the previous screen. Find Extensions for Applications
was broken for a few releases, but has now been fixed. Due to the new Yalu
jailbreak shipping with SSH, some long-standing “right after
jailbreak” bugs were able to be understood and fixed, making Cydia less
likely to fail right after installation.
