Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

As you probably know, Ubuntu will get multi-touch support starting with Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. You can read the official announcement here.

I was away on holiday and missed the whole multi-touch announcement but I'm sure you already know everything about it by now. Anyway, here are 2 videos demonstrating the new multi-touch feature for Evince and Inkscape (the videos date back to August 18, but maybe you haven't seen them):



Keep in mind that the multi-touch feature is still very early in development. Even so, it already looks impressive as both Evince and Inkscape can't handle multi-touch by default yet it works great as you can see in the videos above.

Thanks to LinuxFreedomForLive for the heads up!
