Proud to annouce the release of Cairo-Dock 2.1.3 !

Since our domain name is still unavailable (!) the easiest way to install it is from our PPA :
https://launchpad.net/~cairo-dock-team/+archive/ppa
It's exactly the same as our repository, just it's located on Launchpad instead of our server.

Here is a short changelog :
- A new and simplified config panel has been written
- Thumnbails of windows inside the dock now have an emblem.
- Icons pointing on sub-docks can display the sub-dock's content.
- When an application demands your attention, only its icon will appear when the dock is hidden.
- The DBus plug-in now allows to automatically load external applets, written in any language.
- ShowDesktop can now quickly change the resolution of the screen.
- Dnd2Share can now directly sends the clipboard's content.
- This version also fixes a huge number of problems.

Cool, is it better than AWN? I mean would you recommend it? Because I did try the new version of AWN and I preferred it to Cairo-Dock.

I would say technically far superior ^_^ but better or not, it's a matter of taste, just test it few days and compare, it's free ;-)
