Wow, what a cycle Natty has been already. Back in Orlando, when Mark proposed Unity for inclusion in Ubuntu 11.04, we knew this cycle was going to be a busy one, and the Design, Desktop Experience, Ubuntu Platform, and community teams have been working at full steam to make Natty a rocking release.
I am delighted with the progress so far. We have seen Unity land, performance improvements in Unity, Banshee shipped as our awesome new media player, ratings and reviews appear in the Ubuntu Software Center, improvements to the sound menu, a new network manager indicator, the new Unity workspace switcher, improvements in minimizing/maximizing windows, new apps appearing from the Application Review Board, the calendar indicator get an upgrade, improvements to Ubuntu One, better call handling, Launcher progress bar improvements, and much more.
