    Phoronix: The First Release Of AppStream-Core

    The first release of AppStream-Core is now available, which provides support for creating the AppStream database and accessing it via a GObject-based interface. This basically comes down to the simple creation of "Software Centers" for Linux...

    AFAIK the only Qt application still in development by Canonical is the UbuntuOne configuration GUI, because they want to have it look native in Ubuntu & Windows (and maybe other platforms too).

    There was also Unity 2D, but that's deprecated now.

    Where does it say it's supposed to? =O And AFAIK there's just 2 or 3 major package formats out there anyway.
    The way I see it this is just an effort to bring USC goodness to other distros.
