Drawers has been updated recently to version 12.12.2 bringing more new features and fixes. Drawers is an application that allows Ubuntu users to organize items in the Unity launcher by creating drawers (stacks) into which you can add and group your favorite programs, files/folders, and links with support of drag and drop.

The Drawer's window can also be customized via the Preferences menu:

New created drawers will be now added automatically to the Unity launcher, no need to do that manually. Here are the complete new features and changes in Drawers 12.12.2:

  • New Item Properties Editor Dialog (allows icon selection)
  • Quicklists for alternate execution of Drawer Items
  •        - Will import from newly added applications
  •        - Alternates can be added in Edit Properties dialog
  • New Drawers are added to Unity Launcher Bar automatically
  •        - Preference dialog appears first to allow icon changes
  •        - Thanks to Bernhard Kaindl for code
  • Color and Font Changes take effect immediately on closing preferences
  • Improved loading speed for large drawers
  • Locale support for application names
  • New Translations added (German & Russian)
