Unity Jamendo scope
Hi all, I've just published the new Jamendo scope, bringing a new online music source to Unity (along Soundcloud, Grooveshark, U1 and Amazon). #Jamendo is a free music service with more than 400 000 songs available under Creative Commons.

If you want to test it (for Saucy or Trusty), you need to add the scopes-packagers PPA and install unity-scope-jamendo :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-scope-jamendo

It should also land (at some point) on the smart scopes server, which means it will available by default in the dash for Ubuntu Saucy/Trusty, desktop and mobile.

It was a fun one to write, and the music is great, I hope you'll enjoy it!

Our new team member +Welton Rodrigo Torres Nascimento has refactored almost entirely the Grooveshark scope and the results of his work are quite impressive.

What's new?
* Faster results
* Reduced bandwith usage
* +Ubuntu Unity dash previews

Most of these changes have already landed for Precise users, and are now available on Quantal and Raring.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-scope-grooveshark

The Utilities lens seems to be quite popular... Thanks to all our users!

Meanwhile, on Oneiric
I'm pleased to announce that +Bernd Schlapsi's SSH search lens is now available in the Software Center for Ubuntu 11.10 users. If you like the idea of having a simple and searchable portal to all your SSH hosts, you should give it a try.
