Sileo is a Cydia Alternative for iOS 11 and iOS 12.
Some of may think why do we need Sileo when there is Cydia. Well , the answer for that is Cydia has been replaced by Sileo. Is there any more reasons for why Sileo has been introduced?

Sileo beta update adds new features

Sileo new features

They have fixed a problem that could cause the Sileo app to crash when “certain corrupted packages were installed,”. Additionally, Respring button now works fine. th0r jailbreak and Electra jailbreak are now playing as a platform for Sileo. Electra has made Sileo as one of the default package managers. So people can choose either Sileo or Cydia.

Sileo allows BigBoss repository to display one ad

After some heated situation, Sileo team has finally decided to allow BigBoss to serve one ad to its users. This will display on each jailbreak tweak depiction page in the next beta preview.
The BigBoss repository is the last of the many repositories in business. ModMyi and ZodTTD archived their jailbreak tweak catalogs more than a year ago due to cash flow problems. Even Saurik also decided to close the Cydia Store, disabling jailbreak tweak purchases from the BigBoss repository in the process.

Actually why Sileo has been introduced?

Cydia is more than 15 years old and Saurik is the key star. But from some time, Saurik is being silent and new jailbreak developers don't have time to wait till Saurik update Cydia to the latest version.
As a result of that, they have created their own version of Cydia naming Sileo. Sileo is much faster than Cydia and all credits goes to Electra Jailbreak Team plus more for creating this awesome bundle.

Sileo will be compatible for iOS 11 onwards but not for the versions below iOS 11. For those versions which are below iOS 11 can use Cydia without no question. Further digging, Sileo will not be compatible for 32-bit devices.
But it is said that Sileo will work with previous Cydia repositories and packages and that is a vital implementation detail for those jailbreaking.
