The Ubuntu 12.04 Software Centre has added a new category – ‘Books and Magazines’.

Although a variety of e-books are already available to purchase in Ubuntu 11.10 there is no distinct ‘filter’ available for their browsing. By adding such a category to the Software hub in Ubuntu 12.04 users will be able to quickly find digital publishing available for download and purchase.

The change is one of many tweaks that are due to be implemented ahead of the release of Ubuntu 12.04 next spring.
