2 quick Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot updates:

The new Messaging Menu doesn't yet come with some of the features mentioned on the Ubuntu Wiki (check out this post for more info: Unified Messaging Menu / MeMenu On The Way): there's no "Clear" menu entry, no option to remove it, etc., but these will probably be available soon enough.

- A new Power Indicator is available by default:

Power Indicator Oneiric

According to the Ubuntu Wiki, the new Power Indicator should include external devices too, like wireless mouse or keyboard, iPod, a plugged in phone, etc., as long as the device supports it:
