Ubuntu Developer Summit for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) is taking place these days (October 31st - November 4th) in Orlando, Florida, USA.

Yesterday morning, Mark Shuttleworth delivered his usual keynote, saying that Unity is here to stay and everyone should embrace it.

For Ubuntu 12.04 LTS the developers will make the Unity interface better, including lots of features and improvements. Among them, we can mention that Lenses could be added to the Launcher, Shotwell photo importing support from the Launcher, and new quick-lists.

Moreover, it appears that there's no place for applications that don't support indicator-applets and are available in the Ubuntu Software Center. These apps should be removed/banned until they get support for the new Unity notification area.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, dubbed Precise Pangolin is scheduled for release on April 26th, 2012. It will be the 16th release of the Ubuntu operating system and the first LTS release to be supported for 5 (five) years on both the Desktop and the Server editions.
