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!
