Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail release

said by »wiki.ubuntu.com/RaringRingtail/ReleaseNotes :

The Ubuntu developers are moving quickly to bring you the absolute latest and greatest software the Open Source community has to offer. The Ubuntu 13.04 Release is the next version of Ubuntu.

There has also been a lot of work put in to the Unity dash allowing for more previews to be enabled in search results. Most of the regular software has been updated to the lastest version. Overall this release doesn't feel that different from 12.10, just more polish and better integration on top of the version bumps.
said by »www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/04/ubun···download :

Sporting a more polished and performant Unity desktop, a smattering of new features, and an ample array of updated applications, it is arguably one of the strongest releases of Ubuntu in a long time.

Key changes include:


  • Faster Unity Desktop

  • New Social Lens

  • New Sync Menu

  • Unity-style session dialogs

  • Workspace item removed from launcher

  • Updated Firefox, LibreOffice and File Manager, among others

  • Linux kernel 3.8.8

This is also the first release to include the Ubuntu Gnome spin. »cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-gnome/···release/
Unforuntately it runs Gnome 3.6, not the newly release 3.8.

Yes.

8. Axe Amazon Suggestions

Ubuntus new "Smart Scopes" service wasn't ready in time for Ubuntu 13.04, so the Dash isn't as clever as it should be. Meaning that, yes, Amazon product suggestions will appear in the Dash for whatever you search.

The good news is that feature can be switched off with a click, so there's no need to avoid using Ubuntu altogether.

Open the Privacy pane of System Settings and set the "Include Online Search Results" toggle to "Off".



Be aware that switching this "off" will also affect other lenses that require an internet connection; including the Music lens and Social lens.

Our tip? If you want to keep everything else working, but don't want Amazon result, just open the Ubuntu Software Center, search for "shopping lens" to find it, then hit the "remove" button to uninstall it permanently.
