ubuntu tweak 0.5

With a bit of a delay, Ubuntu Tweak 0.5 has been finally released. We already posted a quick what's new guide (initially, 0.5 was supposed to be released on 1th of January, so read about most of the new features there), but let's have an even quicker look at what's new:

  • A new interface with native icons
  • Application Center: improve from Add/Remove, supports online data sync
  • Source Center: improve from Third-Party Source, supports online data sync
  • Update Manager: a simple but more human-readable update manager
  • Improve the computer page, add “Change Hostname” feature
  • Add indicator-session dialog control
  • Add the menu and button icon options to gnomesettings
  • Add the show desktop icon again
  • Add the option to disable user list in gdm

Like we already told you, Ubuntu Tweak 0.5 only supports Ubuntu Karmic.
