Ubuntu Tweak unveils new look, features for Ubuntu 11.04

With the advent of an entirely new desktop shell for Ubuntu 11.04 one could be forgiven for thinking that Ubuntu Tweak – the popular third-party interface and settings tweaking app – might be rendered obsolete.

The truth is anything but.


New features, new look

The new version of Ubuntu Tweak, pictured above, has had a dramatic visual overhaul, feature rejig and due attention to Ubuntu 11.04 Unity integration.

New features include:

  • Simple ‘overview’ page
  • Search feature
  • Sidebar containing ‘recently used’ options
  • Unity launcher integration for quick access
  • User login

When can I get it?

A beta release of version 0.6 is expected within “one or two weeks” according to the developer – so not long!
