Ubuntu 12.04 updates (22nd Feb)

Ubuntu 12.04 updates (22nd Feb)

A few visual changes have come in post feature freeze in Precise Pangolin daily builds.  Lets quickly go through the visible changes noticed after update on 22nd Feb.
1. Volume level indicator:
The volume level indicator can be found inside the sound menu situated on the top panel. In Ubuntu 11.10, the indicator did not have any colour to indicate the sound level. Only the pointer indicated the level. In 12.04 daily build , an orange colour has been introduced along the border while the inside remains black. The screenshots below will give a better understanding.

2. Power Settings: 
The power settings now sport a coloured  indicator to inform about how may hours of battery life is left on a laptop or how much time until charged.

Plugged in- charging
3. Appearance settings:
The behaviour settings have changed. The options to reveal the launcher at specific spots has been taken off. Only launcher reveal sensitivity can be changed.

UPDATE: New change spotted on Ubuntu One installer

The Ubuntu One installer now sports a new look. 

Please note that these changes may be temporary and may not feature in the final version of the operating system which is due in April 2012.
