Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Beta 1 Released
Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin beta 1 has been released and it includes a huge number of changes so let's take a look at what's new.
Some of the new features now available are :
- THE HUD :
One new feature is the HUD (Head-Up Display) and I think it’s amazing.A new way to quickly search and access any desktop application’s and indicator’s menu, called the HUD, can be accessed by taping the Alt key and entering characters. HUD is an alternative to application menus especially designed for Unity that works everywhere the global menu does and lets you search the menus of either the focused window or the whole application.
- UNITY VIDEO LENS :
- MISCELLANEOUS :
- The default music player has been switched to Rhythmbox, which again includes the UbuntuOne music store.
- LibreOffice has been updated to 3.5 beta 2.
- When installing packages through the software center, the corresponding language support packages are now installed automatically as well.
- A shortcut hints overlay is displayed when pressing and holding the SUPER key. This is a list of Unity keyboard shortcuts that blends nicely with the desktop by using the same style as Dash :
