Dash To Dock 67

A few days ago the launch of the new version of the Dash to Dock 67 panel was presented, which is done as an extension of the Gnome Shell. It enables users to start and switch between desktop and application windows much faster.

This extension is particularly useful for Linux users who like to customize virtually every aspect of the desktop. With it, you can decide whether to show application windows, scroll through open application windows using the mouse scroll bar, view window previews using custom keyboard shortcuts, hide favorites panel and display the dock menu on as many connected monitors, among other customization options.

Also It is important to mention that based on Dash to Dock, Ubuntu Dock is built, which comes as part of Ubuntu instead of the Unity shell.

Ubuntu Dock is mainly distinguished by the default configuration and the need to use a different name to organize the updates taking into account the details of the delivery through the main Ubuntu repository and the development of functional changes is carried out as part of the project main Dash to Dock.
