Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal Alpha 1 has been released yesterday. Being only Alpha 1 there are a lot of packages and features in heavy development, transition or out-right not included at all yet. As such don’t take too much away from this overview – a lot of things are going to change between now and April! But since Unity received an update a couple of days ago, I though you might want to see a new video with Unity in action (thanx to Andrew from WebUpd8)
- changing the icon theme will also change the icons in the Unity launcher (“dock”) – this wasn’t working in 10.10. Unfortunately the icons only change after a log out and I can’t do that and keep recording (and if I disable and re-enable Unity, it crashes).
- the number of open windows is indicated by dots under the icon on the Unity Launcher. Clicking an icon for an application that has more then one window open will trigger an expose effect for the windows
- right now, clicking the Ubuntu logo will launch Nautilus (applications folder) instead of Dash (about a week ago, this button did nothing). This should change in Alpha 2.
