Source: Ubuntu Tweak
After almost deciding to end all development on the project last month, Ubuntu Tweak founder and lead developer Tualatrix Chou released a new version his open source application for customising the Ubuntu Linux distribution. The most notable change in version 0.8.2 of the tool is the addition of official support for Ubuntu 12.10 "Quantal Quetzal", the latest stable release of the operating system.

Under Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2 can now be used to customise the position of the window control buttons, window theme and other settings. Tweaks specific to 12.10 have also been added; for example, the utility includes an option to easily disable Unity Web Apps integration. However, some features such as Desktop Recovery and Shortcuts have been removed as they do not work the recent Ubuntu release. Other changes include updates to the Apps functionality, which was brought back in 0.8.0, and the introduction of the “Love Wallpaper HD” online wallpaper gallery, as well as various bug fixes.

An overview of all of the changes in the update can be found in the announcement blog post and in the release notes. Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2 is available to download as source, a DEB package or can be installed via a PPA from the project's Launchpad page. The source code of the application is licensed under the GPLv2.
