Ubuntu Feature Freeze is always such an exciting time.  New stable (2.0.7) and development (2.1.0) versions of MenuLibre are now available.  Several bugs have been fixed and the new development release begins to show a modern spin on the UI.

What’s New?

MenuLibre 2.0.7 is a bugfix release and 2.1.0 builds on top of that release with several improvements.

  • Support psutil 3.0.1 (LP: #1474484)
  • Use string values for GtkEntry (LP: #1430613)
  • Support launcher subdirectories (LP: #1313682)


  • Updated artwork, courtesy of Simon Steinbeiß
  • Refactored several components to improve code quality and maintainability
  • Exit with Ctrl+Q
  • New widgets: GtkApplicationWindow, GtkHeaderbar, GtkStackSwitcher
  • Improved Name and Comment entry
  • Improved Executable and Working Directory entry
