[Oneiric Updates] Some Upcoming Changes in Unity

Some neat welcome changes are going to land in Ubuntu 11.10 soon. First two changes below have already made it into Unity trunk and will most probably be included in next Unity release.

New Alt+TAB Switcher

Default Alt+TAB switcher has been improved with new better look. Check out the video below:

New Way to Unmount External Devices

External devices can be easily unmounted by simply dragging and dropping them over the trash icon.

New Dark Toolbars

Light themes in Oneiric will most likely get a darker toolbar as seen in a screenshot shared on Google Plus by light-themes developer Andrea Cimitan.

This is still work-in-progress.
