Gwibber 2.0 is released!

Wow, Gwibber 2.0 is out. Unlike the previous versions, this version is very good. It sports a tweetdeck like interface, with a nice navigation bar for searching messages, replies, DMs etc. It supports twitter, facebook, friendfeed, digg… Though ping.fm is missed out in this version, no idea why.

The other noticeable improvements include Retweet support and tomboy notes integration for tweets. Nice!

One thing i hate about the new version is the update editor is at the button. Initally when you install it is very difficult to find it. Its at the button and you need to drag to see the update editor.

Installation:

The default multi universe repo on ubuntu is not updated yet with the gwibber 2.0.
