As a sort of update from my prior post about Linux, Gwibber recently hit the 3.1 milestone (via OMG! Ubuntu!) and it included enough new stuff to be renamed.
Basically, they rewrote the whole program and brought out a new style as well … all while hitting most of my major problems with the program. I’m going to play around with it some more at home (where I have my Ubuntu test machine set up) and see if it is as great as it looks so far, but I have to say that I am impressed.
This update is what I was talking about when I asked for more polish (no, not the sausage). I hope more apps take their que from Gwibber and look into radical rewrites to improve the end-user experience.
