Lets users install software without needing root privileges
The Zero Install Injector lets users install software easily and without needing root privileges. It takes the URL of a program's interface description and chooses suitable versions of the program and its dependencies (also identified by URLs) according to the user's policy settings (eg. "stable", "testing", "minimal network use", etc). It then loads and chaches the chosen versions and runs the program, using environment variables to let it find the components.
