Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail has received numerous news and this time the new features are more visible than ever. The Window dialog to shutdown and restart Ubuntu and even to end the session will have a more uniform aspect in relation to Unity Desktop, bringing transparency and leaving the windows GTK.
In addition to this excellent new look, Unity Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail also has a feature not so visible but equally important that you can see in the video in this article: exchange windows of the same type when it makes scrolling over the application icon.
Regarding the first feature mentioned in this article, all windows session management, including shutdown, hibernate, log off,reboot and lock up session will have a transparent aspect. The visual aspect is quite similar to the Unity Desktop, failing to use the traditional windows/GTK dialogs, as you can see by the pictures below.
These new dialogue session management have been developed by Marco Trevisan and have been proposed for Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail. So soon will be available daily in versions of Ubuntu 13.04.
Regarding the functionality of exchanging windows of the same type, it works in a very simple way: when the user scroll over the icon of an application (rotate the mouse wheel), Ubuntu will switch to another window of the same type that application . This feature, developed by Andrea Azzarone can be seen working on the video below
The old functionality that Unity had to click the icon multiple applications of the same type remains the same, ie, lists various open windows for the user to choose.
