Ubuntu Tweak 0.7 Released - "Precise Tweak"

Ubuntu Tweak 0.7 has been made available just one day before the release of Ubuntu 12.04. This new version brings many new features for tweaking parts of Ubuntu Precise, including a Quicklist editor, LightDM settings, Unity settings and Workspace settings. And that is probably why the developer wanted to call it "Precise Tweak". Ubuntu Tweak 0.7 is only available for Precise and Oneiric.

Just as a quick reminder, Ubuntu Tweak is an unofficial application for tweaking Ubuntu desktop and system settings which can't be tweaked easily otherwise.

This new version of Ubuntu Tweak brings quite a few changes, including:
  • Return of the features App Center, Source Center, Templates and Scripts
  • Source Center is integrated with PPA Purge feature, and App Center with “Installed Apps” view
  • Improved Janitor with cleaning apps cache
  • Global fuzzy search
  • QuickLists Editor to edit the Unity Launcher
  • Login settings for 12.04
  • More Unity settings and new Workspace settings
Ubuntu Tweak is not limited to just tweaking Unity's settings, it can also tweak many settings for the system, session, file manager, file type handling, themes, fonts, sound, etc.
