(Linux) Deepin 2014 - See What`s New [Video, Screenshots]: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/07/linux-deepin-2014-see-whats-new-video.html

Deepin 2014 (based on Ubuntu 14.04) was released recently and comes with a huge list of changes and improvements, including a new Control Center, an updated dock and application launcher, new default icon theme, new default applications and more. Let's take a look at what's new!

Deepin, previously known as "Linux Deepin", is a Chinese Linux distribution (a multi-language ISO is available) based on Ubuntu, that ships with its own desktop environment based on Compiz and some unique applications, which integrate with the overall Linux Deepin look and feel.

Until version 12.12, Deepin used a highly customized GNOME Shell as the default desktop environment / shell and then it switched to its own desktop environment: Deepin Desktop Environment, which uses Compiz (with some custom patches) under the hood.

Screencasting App `Simple Screen Recorder` 0.3.0 Adds Profile Support, New OpenGL Recording System And Lots More: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/07/screencasting-app-simple-screen.html

Simple Screen Recorder (SSR), a Qt desktop recorder for Linux, was updated to version 0.3.0 today, bringing profile support, a new, more flexible OpenGL recording system, native support for mono microphones and other interesting changes.

The tool comes with basically all the features you need in a screencast app: record the entire screen (with multi-monitor support), record a fixed rectangle, follow the cursor, record OpenGL applications (which can be used to record games), record audio input (PulseAudio, JACK and ALSA), options to scale the video, to record (or not) the cursor, to pause/resume the recording and so on. It even has experimental live streaming support.

Simple Screen Recorder can record your screen using any container (MP4, MKV, OGG, WebM and so on) and audio/video codec (H.264, VP8, Theora for videos and Vorbis, mp3, AAC, etc. for audio) supported by libav, with configurable bit rate, etc.

Note-Taking / PDF Annotation Tool `Xournal` 0.4.8 Released With New Export To PDF Code, Other Changes: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/07/note-taking-pdf-annotation-tool-xournal.html

Xournal was updated to version 0.4.8 today, bringing new Export to PDF code, a horizontal view mode along with other changes.

For those not familiar with Xournal, this is a GTK+ application for note-taking, sketching, keeping a journal using a stylus on Tablet PCs and other platforms.

The application comes with various tools such as: pen, eraser, highlighter, text tool and shape recognizer. Additionally, strokes and blocks of text can be selected, moved and copied using a rectangular selection tool. Besides taking notes or sketching, these tools can be used to annotate PDF files (it uses the Poppler library to render PDF documents) which can be saved either in native Xournal file format or exported to PDF.

It runs on top of xfce and shutdowns when switching to a new workspace. Nice toy to play with for geeks.

Make VLC Automatically Save / Restore Playback Position With Srpos Plugin: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/07/make-vlc-automatically-save-restore.html

VLC is a great media player but it lacks a minor, yet pretty important feature, some would say: an option to resume playback from where you left off. However, VLC supports plugins and there is one called Srpos (available for Linux and Windows) which does just that: it allows VLC to automatically save the playback position when you close the player and to automatically start playing from the same position when you replay the file.
