Zeitgeist powered Jump-lists in GNOME Shell

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Browsing around Zeitgeist developer and fellow OMG! Ubuntu! writer Seif Lotfy’s YouTube I came across a short video demonstration of Zeitgeist powered jump-lists in GNOME-Shell.

The file-friendly approach puts access to your latest, most recent of favourite documents within direct reach of the application itself: just right-click on a launcher to view files and launch them in the application. If you’ve ever used Docky and Zeitgeist together then chances are you’re familiar with the approach.

Sadly the Launcher of Ubuntu 11.04 doesn’t provide contextual results for applications. Developers can, however, add support for a static ‘quicklist’ of actions to their application launchers.
