this post. There are more feature but we want to let you some homework.

  • More resource consumption (around 50MB of RAM more than Turpial 1.6.9)
  • Every time you start the application you need to load your friends
  • Account dialog needs a extreme makeover
  • There is no way to follow users except through their profiles As usual, you can find the source package in our

files repository and the source code in the github repository. Package maintainers will be working to make available this release on official repositories of most popular GNU/Linux distros.
