A complete list can be found HERE.

To install the latest gThumb 2.13.3 in Ubuntu 11.10 or 11.04 (sorry, it doesn't work in older Ubuntu versions due to dependency issues), using our gThumb PPA, use the commands below:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gthumb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gthumb

gThumb is also available in the main WebUpd8 PPA (ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8).

The following packages have also been updated in the WebUpd8 PPA: DockBarX to version 0.46.1, Puddletag to (no Oneiric version yet because it's freezing under 11.10 in my tests) and Audacious to version 3.0.1. Audacious is only available for Oneiric because it requires a newer FFMpeg version that what's available in Natty or older and using this version, some file formats wouldn't be played by Audacious. All these application got some minor changes / bug fixes, that's why there's no changelog.
