This is the first release of UbuTricks, a graphical program which aims to ease installing latest versions of various applications in Ubuntu. Currently, 11 programs are included, and Ubuntu 14.04 is supported.
So another month went by and it’s time to sum up some of the most important articles published here at TuxArena during April.
With Ubuntu 14.04 being released and reviewed, several articles were kindly mentioned in the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, issues #363 and #365 or via other Ubuntu official resources. They cover Ubuntu and derivatives, and here they are:
GNOME Takes Over KDE
KDE, the popular desktop environment known for its modern interface and powerful configuration options, was taken over by the GNOME Foundation.
“We will completely rewrite KDE to conform with GNOME User Interface Guidelines. We will strip all the unnecessary options, remove the plasmoids, the panel and the menu from KDE.”
During March, a few noteworthy articles were published here at TuxArena. Let’s have a look at the most important ones.
GNOME 3.12 Released with New Features, Apps, IRC Client
GNOME 3.12 has been launched during March, bringing a lot of improvements and features. Three new applications were introduced in GNOME as well.
I compiled a cheat sheet for Linux which includes general-purpose commands, one-liners, Bash tips and system calls. You can download it from here.

TuxArena now has a new WordPress theme. There is still some work that I have to do on the comments, that is, make them look nicer, but otherwise it seems to work well. Hope you like it ;) If I can finish it, maybe I’ll try submitting it to the WordPress themes directory.
TuxArena is alive!
