Unity 5.12 landed in Ubuntu 12.04 with numerous bug fixes and improvements
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS was release weeks ago, transforming Unity into a polished, fast and reliable interface, nevertheless, the new look&feel introduced various bugs, too.
Unity 5.12 has just landed in Ubuntu 12.04 as a stable release update, designed with fixing bugs in mind, as well a targeting (and achieving) a boost in speed.
The Unity panel's shadows feature now a faster, more pleasant look especially when users hover the mouse pointer over several indicator menus.
Show Desktop (the launcher icon) is now, by default, positioned at the bottom of the launcher, losing its top above-the-BFB irritating place.
Unity Video lens gained a proper placing of items (rendered with the new card view), meaning, running the Dash in the unmaximized state and activating the filters (expanding them) displays a proper number of items (like for instance, two clips as opposed to just one, thus occupying the "old" empty Dash place).
The new 5.12 version also brings a solid number of fixes and improvements packed with a general boost in speed (especially noticeable in the fullscreen Dash).
