EasyPeasy 1.6 is finally more or less complete. Even though it’s not ready for download, I’m updating you like this because I promised to do so. What’s left to do is updating to the latest linux kernel (which is what improves hardware support and battery life) released later today. Also, it’s a little big (830 mb download) so I will work at slimming it down.
What you’re seeing here is based on the, not yet released, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. We’re keeping the great artwork by Lasse and Mark and have changed the default theme to Ambiant. This theme gives us a sleek monocrome looking top panel. There are also changes to the desktop launcher which now slides through your installed applications. Pidgin Messenger has been swapped out with Empathy. The Empathy team has the same mission as us – to make it work out of the box: Chatting, sharing, remote desktop connection etc. all works without any configuration.
I’ve been sitting a lot at the same place developing this, so I thought I’d share a pic with our avid blog readers. This is my desk at home.
