JAyatana is a project that integrates Java Swing applications (such as NetBeans IDE, IntelliJ IDEA, Android Studio, jDownloader and so on) with Ubuntu's global menu and HUD.
Starting with Ubuntu 15.04, JAyatana was installed by default and it was configured to allow all Java Swing applications to use Ubuntu's global menu and HUD. This was changed yesterday when JAyatana was updated to no longer export the JAVA_TOOL_OPTION session file, meaning that Ubuntu no longer supports HUD or global menu for Java Swing applications by default.
This change affects both Ubuntu 15.10 and 15.04 (though for Ubuntu 15.04, this update is still in the proposed repository).
SMPlayer, a Qt front-end for mplayer, has reached version 15.9.0 recently, this being the first stable version to support mpv. There are various other new features as well, like support for 3D stereo filter, MPRIS v2 support, a new default theme and more.
Flacon is a Qt tool which can be used to extract individual tracks from audio CD images which contain an entire album, such as WavPack, APE, FLAC, WAV or True Audio, based on the information provided in the CUE file.
The application provides output format-specific settings: you can set the output quality, compression and so on as well as ReplayGain, either per album or per track.
Another useful Flacon feature is its ability to tag the resulting tracks, either based on the information provided in the CUE file or manually.
Complete Flacon feature list:
- supports the following input formats: WAV, FLAC, APE, WavPack, True Audio (TTA).
- supported output formats: LAC, WAV, WavPack, AAC, OGG, MP3 and Opus (with the latest Flacon 1.2.0) with preset and quality settings, etc.;
- replay Gain analysis (album-gain and track-gain modes);
- multi-threaded conversion process;
- automatic character set detection for CUE files;
- automatially tag resulting track files;
Flacon 1.2.0, released recently, brings Qt5 support along with Opus output support. However, please note that the packages available in the official Flacon PPA are still built with Qt4.
Install Flacon in Ubuntu or Linux Mint
To install Flacon in Ubuntu or Linux Mint, you can use its official PPA. To add the PPA and install the application, use the following commands:
For other Linux distributions, see the Flacon downloads page.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flacon/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install flacon

Enpass 5.0 RC was released recently (64bit only for Linux), bringing one of the most requested features: browser extensions for both Firefox and Chrome on Linux and Windows (and for Safari on Mac), which allows auto-filling your username/password and other sensitive information directly from the web browser.
For those not familiar with Enpass, this is a proprietary cross-platform password manager which uses SQLCipher under the hood, an open source extension to SQLite that provides transparent 256-bit AES encryption of database files.
The app comes with many useful features, including built-in (encrypted) backup/sync to Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Box and ownCloud/WebDAV and is available for Linux, Windows and Mac as well as iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry. The desktop apps are free to use with no limitations while the mobile apps offer in-app purchases (Android, iOS) or cost 9.99$ (Windows Phone).
Quick update: The DockBarX Xfce4 Panel plugin was updated to version 0.4.1 recently, bringing a pretty important new feature: panel blending.
Terminator is terminal emulator which includes numerous useful features such as multiple terminals in the same window (split view), notifications, supports saving and restoring custom layouts and much more.
