Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Everpad, an application that integrates the popular note taking service `Evernote` with Unity through an AppIndicator and Unity lens, was updated recently, the new version bringing a cool new feature for Ubuntu 12.10 users: support for Unity Previews, being one of the first unofficial lenses which takes advantage of this new feature.

The Unity Previews feature for Everpad isn't limited to text - if you've attached an image to your note, the Everpad lens displays an image preview too. There's also an "Edit" button which opens the Everpad note editor, but hopefully, Unity will support basic editing inside the lens in the future, so applications such as Everpad can work entirely inside the lens, without the need of external UIs.

To install Everpad in Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 or 11.10 (but obviously, the Previews feature won't work in Ubuntu 12.04 or 11.10), use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install everpad
