Linux Twitter application ‘Pino’ may be a relative new-comer to the desktop, but today saw it’s first stable release.
We reviewed Pino a few weeks ago and were left suitably impressed. The development since then has been border-line breakneck and this first release proper comes mere weeks after the initial Alpha version was release.
- Custom interval for data updating.
- Creating new tweets and replying to users from your timeline.
- Hiding menu and panels.
- Tray icon.
- Showing retweets in timeline (author of tweet and who retweeted).
- Default Gnome notifications of new tweets.
- Keeping unread tweets until the main window is not focused.
- Deleting your own tweets.
Sadly Pino has traded out its gorgeous monochromatic ‘t’ icon for something resembling a donkey in a dress (!?)
Pino has a PPA for easy installation and helps you keep up with updates.
This can be added by opening a terminal and pasting the following: -
- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:troorl/pino
Note that if you already have Pino installed (i.e. any version before today’s final version) you will need to remove it and then install the latest version.
