Almost three months since the last post, how is it going with Ubuntu Tweak?
Yeah, just as the title said: Ubuntu Tweak 0.6 is close to releasing! And I have some other updates want to share with you.
Let’s get started!
First, here’s the major changes since the last post:
- Only support Ubuntu 11.10 and later (and of course: Linux Mint 12)
- Support three major desktop environments: Unity, Unity-2D, GNOME Shell
- More tweaks have been added, E.G. Unity Settings
- Solve some critical bugs of the Janitor and improve the usability
And here’s one screenshot of Unity Settings
Here’s another news I need to announce:
Ubuntu Tweak source code has moved to Launchpad/Bzr
As you may know, I used to manage the source code of Ubuntu Tweak by Git, but it is not so friendly for the Ubuntu Community. Because the prefer tool to manage source code is Bzr.
So I finally decided to move to Launchpad/Bzr, now I’m getting used to play with Bzr, it is also very cool. The most important thing is that the members from Ubuntu Community can easily join the development of Ubuntu Tweak.
The code is located here: https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu-tweak
If you want to play with the code of Ubuntu Tweak, just do “bzr branch lp:ubuntu-tweak”
There are still many things to do for the final release, such as: translate, bugs fix and other improvement.
Please help to test the latest Ubuntu Tweak and report any problem you find.
You can get the latest testing version from the Testing PPA: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-tweak-testing/+archive/ppa
Let’s make it happen!
