The latest version of the Ubuntu Linux operating system has been released. Code-named Quantal Quetzal, this version features quite a number of changes from its predecessor. There has been no new features since the release of Beta 2. If you missed out on the release of Beta 2, check out the new features here.
Now that you have it downloaded and installed on your computer, here are things you should do to get your Ubuntu up and running:
An unofficial Google Drive app for Linux, Insync, has reached it’s 9th Beta version. Insync allows you to sync all your documents to your computer as Google Drive still doesn’t have an official Linux client. It also comes with Nautilus integration, and Ubuntu AppIndicator support as well as support for multiple Google accounts.
One of the latest apps for Ubuntu released recently (for the Ubuntu App Showdown) is MyAgenda. MyAgenda works as a very simple calendar/reminder application. It has a rather well crafted design and a simple interface that keeps the clutter (or unnecessary buttons) away.
In more Quantal development news, Unity in Ubuntu 12.10 would have a new feature called ‘Previews’.
Previews will give users an extra option with results in the Dash – right-click to open a preview pane. In previous versions of Unity, users only had one option with results in the Dash which is to open the file.
