After being in development for six months, GNOME 3.24 was released today, bringing improvements such as Night Light, weather information in the date / time indicator, along with updates to its applications, and more.
The Dropbox indicator is broken in Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus (currently in beta): the menu doesn't work and Dropbox uses a different icon, probably because it tries to use the tray instead of the indicator.
Rclone 1.36 was released recently, bringing support for SFTP, local symbolic links support, mount improvements, along with many other new features and bug fixes.
For those not familiar with Rclone, this is a cross-platform command line tool for synchronizing files and folders to multiple cloud storages, which supports Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3, Amazon Drive, Microsoft One Drive, Yandex Disk, and more.
My downloads folder is pretty messy but I can't just delete things because I still need most of the stuff I download. To "fix" this, I was looking for an app that can automatically organize my downloads, and I stumbled upon Classifier, an easy to use command line tool that can organize files in any directory.
Here's an example - on the left there's a folder which contains various file types (images, archives, documents, etc.) and on the right it's a folder that contains the exact same files as the folder on the left, but after running Classifier to organize it (into folders):
KDE Connect (with KDE Connect Indicator for Unity and other desktops that support AppIndicators) is great for integrating Android devices with your desktop. However, KDE Connect depends on quite a few KDE packages, which some users don't want to install on their GTK-based desktops.
An alternative to KDE Connect is Pushbullet. While the free version has some limitations and it doesn't offer all the features available with KDE Connect, it does provide options to send files up to 25MB, send messages from your desktop (limited to 100/month in the free version, and a storage cap of 2GB) and most importantly, it can mirror your phone's notifications on the desktop.
Note that Pushbullet requires both the Android device and desktop to be connected to the Internet, but they don't have to be in the same network.
Todo Indicator is an AppIndicator to for todo.txt-style todo lists. The indicator displays the list of tasks from a todo.txt file and lets you mark tasks as done directly from the indicator.
The originalTodo Indicator was last updated back in May, 2014, so WebUpd8 reader William decided to fork it and add a new feature: filtering based on a specific context or project. Furthermore, indicator was updated to work with either Python 2 or Python 3.
