I've added this enum. Could you guys please add support for newest in
your backend please?
The description is thus:
The newest filter will only return the _newest_ package available.
This is useful if you are searching for gimp and only
gimp-2.4.5-1.fc9.i386 would be returned, not gimp-2.4.5-1.fc9.i386,
gimp-2.4.4-1.fc9.i386 and gimp-2.4.3-1.fc9.i386.
This filter makes pk-application much more useful, and also allows us to
create a simple application browser in the future.
