Ubuntu 12.10 New Software updater
Ubuntu’s Software Updater application features a streamlined interface, a de-cluttering along the lines of Nautilus Elementary; less visual clutter and a focus on just the core message.
It is included in various builds of Ubuntu 12.10 Alpha 3 can be downloaded from the Ubuntu development site.
Remember that Alpha releases are intended for use by developers and testers and not those seeking a stable user experience; whilst it is fairly solid so far, this is not production-ready.
I can live with the name, but given that I like the additional info available before and during software updates, this plays to me like more 'dumbing down' of the user experience. I hope I'm wrong. RC
