Revamped Software Centre Preview Lands in Ubuntu 11.10

The new look ‘GTK3′ version of the Ubuntu Software Centre is available for testing in Ubuntu 11.10 Alpha.

The revamped store – which we pimped with plenty of screenshots last week – is not set as default just yet. In order to use/play/break the ‘technical preview’ you need to runsoftware-center-gtk3from the Terminal.

Do remember that the revamped store is currently in active development and is not complete,stableor indicative of any future release.

If you’re testing Ubuntu 11.10 this update will be waiting for you in the Update Manager.
