"Unity Interface has just received a massive overhaul in Ubuntu 11.10 and the main dash menu looks better than ever. Application access and discovery has improved greatly. Two main lenses in Unity launcher, Applications and Files Lenses have been removed and are now integrated into the dash only. A new Music Lens has also been introduced for quickly searching and browsing your favorite artists.

The Ubuntu Button on top left corner has been removed and a new big Ubuntu orb on the launcher now activates the main dash menu. Active blur option for the dash is turned on by default now giving it a really sleek and polished look. Application title, window controls and app menu on top panel now show all the way to the left. There are still two more Betas to come so the interface will be polished more overtime as it is quite slow and there are still many rough edges.
