AWN Dock 0.3.2 released

Avant Window Navigator has released version 0.3.2 today and it represents a year's worth of bugfixes and performance improvements. This includes the release of the core dock, "awn", and all the applets and plugins, "awn-extras". There was a combination of about 130 bug fixes and feature requests closed in this release, including a few entirely new applets! One of the new applet (moderately pointless I admit) is the Animal Farm applet, which displays a cute animal who gives you a fortune on a click, thereupon changing to a different random animal. Below is a shot of 10 of them running :)

Other fun applets include a new customizable notification tray applet which supports transparency (with GTK 2.15+ in Jaunty), a flexible web comics applet, a new themeable clock, a simple to-do list, as well as plugins for Remember The Milk and Tomboy. Don't forget that great applets like Pandora, weather, calendar, and shinyswitcher (a desktop switcher) already exist and have been improved as well.

Awn-manager has also gotten a lot of love since the last release; managing themes and launchers should provide a much better user experience. Tons of bugs have been squashed in awn-manager and most changes will be reflected immediately...no need to restart AWN!
