Ubuntu Tweak's maintainer: The development of Ubuntu Tweak is stopped
Ubuntu Tweak is a powerful tool, that allows users to easily maneuver numerous configuration options, ranging from GTK+ themes, font types, Unity options, etc, to cleaning the cache, removing old kernels, adding numerous applications, etc.
Tualatrix, the maintainer and developer of Ubuntu Tweak, has just made an announcement, stating, on the official blog, that the development and maintenance of Ubuntu Tweak have been stopped, "no matter how you got this news, what I want to announce is the same: I want to stop the development and maintenance of Ubuntu Tweak".
Furthermore, opening Ubuntu Tweak 0.8 (the latest version) and navigating to the Apps category, presents the
"The development of Ubuntu Tweak is stopped" message.
The reasons behind the mentioned decision are (as stated by Tualatrix): "You may ask why I made this decision to stop the development of Ubuntu Tweak, I may write 10,000 words to describe how I start this project, how I feel happy from this project, how I feel bad from this project…But I just want to say: If making free software is not free any more, why still doing this?".
