Mousewheel Zoom, a Gnome Shell tool that enables a Compiz-like ALT + mousewheel zoom, is now available in a PPA for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot.

Add the PPA and install GNOME Shell Mousewheel Zoom using the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tobias-quinn/gsmz
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-mousewheel-zoom

Thanks to Tobias for the tip!




Ubuntu Font Family Monospace

Ubuntu Font Family 0.80 (which includes a monospace variant) is now available in the official Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot repositories. 

To make it easier to install and stay up to date with the latest versions, I've also uploaded the new font version to the WebUpd8 Ubuntu Font Family PPA, for Ubuntu 11.04, 10.10 and 10.04 - add the PPA and install it using the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/ubuntu-font-family
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-font-family

If you're not using Ubuntu or don't want to use our PPA, you can download the Ubuntu font via font.ubuntu.com





Emesene

Emesene is a chat application which supports MSN, Gtalk, Facebook chat, Jabber and others. It supports Adium-like themes, Ubuntu Messaging Menu and lots more.

Emesene 2.11.9 changelog:
  • Download plugins and themes from within emesene (directly from github)
  • A new (and better) Plus! color parser
  • A new and improved version of papyon (msn library) inside emesene (with lots of fixes, no more external dependency required)
  • A contact management list for the msn protocol (Privacy Lists)
  • Lots of custom emoticon fixes
  • Almost 200 user reported issues were fixed


The latest Emesene 2.11.9 is not yet available in the Emesene PPA, so I've uploaded it to the WebUpd8 Unstable PPA, for Ubuntu 11.10, 11.04, 10.10 users (unfortunately the build failed for Lucid) - add the PPA and install it using the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install emesene

If you're not using Ubuntu, download Emesene from HERE.
