Ubuntu10.04测试版:整合管理社交网站

    Canonical基金会日前发布了Ubuntu 10.04首个beta测试版,其开发代码为Lucid Lynx(机敏的山猫),计划于四月发布正式版。Ubuntu 10.04将是一个长期支持(LTS)版本,意味着正式发布后其PC版和服务器版将分别获得三年和五年的软件更新支持。尽管开发人员此次致力于提升新版Ubuntu的稳定性,但同时也为之增加了不少值得注意的新功能和应用程序。其中最引人瞩目的改变是新主题的引入,更换新主题是Ubuntu全面品牌重塑行动中的一部分,该行动旨在改善Ubuntu的视觉识别体系。

    Canonical的Ayatana开发小组对应用面板进行了彻底革新。Ubuntu 10.04里引入了能简化面板通知区域的全新应用指示系统。开发小组还为应用面板增加了新的Me Menu菜单,用于管理即时通讯工具和向社交网站发送短消息。新版Ubuntu里还增加了一个简单的视频编辑工具Pitivi。此外,在一片争议声 中,Ubuntu开发人员去掉了流行的图形编辑软件GIMP。
