"Ubuntu 10.04 codenamed Lucid Lynx is on the verge of its final descent. A lot of new things are coming your way. Ubuntu Artwork Pool in Flickr is buzzing with activity, so is the awesome Community Contributed Themes at Ubuntu Artwork Wiki page. But apart from these eye candy, in a more subtle way, a number of new applications are also in the pipeline. Let's explore these new comers.

"The buzz word is social, and you can't have a distro without a microblogging client these days. The world is more twitterish and facebookish than ever before and hence comes the Gwibber microblogging client.

"Gwibber is arguably the most popular microblogging client application in Linux(at least in Ubuntu) and it comes as default in Ubuntu Lucid 10.04. That is indeed welcome. Gwibber supports all popular social networking services like Twitter, Facebook, Identi.ca, Digg, FriendFeed and so on."
