Shiney Shiney

Seeing as I wasn't ever able to complete the work I started on AWN 0.4 a couple of years ago, it's only fitting that I congratulate the guys that have done a *massive* amount of work since picking it up over a year ago and brought AWN 0.4 to release!

It contains a bunch of new features, as well as being a complete rewrite from the ground up, introducing some exciting possibilities and should allow much faster release cycles in the future.

Instead of going through all the features here, I'd ask you to check out Michal's excellent post which has all the new features plus pictures and videos.

I've been told it should be landing in Lucid's archives soon, so keep a look out. A tarball is available here. If you have any questions/comments, please see the wiki or join #awn on Freenode.

Wonderful. Best dock about at the moment.

Awesome! I've got gnome-globalmenu and docky all set up, but I was wondering what to do moving my grandma from mac to ubuntu because of gnome-do's instability. Now I know :D

I've tried AWN before, but those screenshots look just glorious.

Great !

The only problem is the pore state of i18n, especially in awn-extra (it has been opened for translation quite recently so it's just a matter of time)

Do you plan to push some i18n updates in lucid?
