avant window navigator multiple instances helpers

Avant Window Navigator (AWN) has almost everything you'd need in a dock: from a huge list of applets which include menus, notification area or the indicator applet to a panel mode and beautiful styles such as Lucido so it can fully replace the GNOME panel and look gorgeous too. Still, there was one thing missing in AWN: multipanel configuration. But as you can see in the screenshot above, you will soon be able to use multiple docks with AWN, each with its own configuration.

Besides Multipanel Configuration, AWN will also be getting "Helpers" for some applications such as Pidgin, Rhythmbox or Transmission.

These new features are not yet available in the Avant Window Navigator package from the development PPA, but expect them to come in an update really soon!
