Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.0 Has Been Released

Ubuntu Tweak Version 0.5.0 was released on January 10. There are a great many changes, including a new interface and many new options.

One change that may take some getting used to is that Ubuntu Tweak will now support only the current version of Ubuntu. This means that support for Ubuntu 9.04 and prior versions has been dropped.

The Add/Remove area has been made into a new Application Center, which supports online data sync from the Ubuntu Tweak website. This means that the applications data will keep up-to-date, even if you haven’t updated to the very latest version of Ubuntu Tweak. The Source Center – improved from Third-Party Sources – also has the ability to sync.

I have not tested Ubuntu Tweak 0.5.0 as much as I would have liked because the server would not respond when I tried to sync my applications information. I cannot imagine how many people must have been pounding the server on the day the new version was released!

I still recommend Ubuntu Tweak as a must-have for anyone who is serious about running Ubuntu. It keeps adding more and more functions to its already impressive array – yet it remains easy to use. Ubuntu Tweak version 0.5.0 can be downloaded here.
