The new version of Gnome Do 0.8 has just been released! GNOME Do (Do) is an intelligent launcher that makes your computer simple and efficient. It allows you to search items in your desktop (e.g. applications, contacts, bookmarks, files, music), and it also allows you to specify actions to perform on search results (e.g. run, open, email, chat, play). Want to listen to music? - Just type "play AC/DC" without quotes and the music will start (You need to enable Rythmbox or other player plugin for playing your music archive) That's simple. Gnome DO is super powerful, pluginable, intuitive peace of software and once you try it you will use it all the time.

The 0.8 release added a smooth animations and more attractive interfaces. It use less memory, animations are faster and Do will learn your search activities and offer personalized search results immediately. One of the most interesting aspects about the release is the addition of a Dock interface called Docky.

Docky is a one of a frontends for GNOME Do (Do) that introduces more friendly interact with Do. At first, it appears to be just another copy of MacOS dock. But Docky is smart and is automatically and dynamically populated from your most launched applications in Do. You can also add and remove launchers by dragging them to and from the dock. You can resize Docky with divider between your launchers and trash to size Docky vertically, and to resize it horizontally you can grab either end. And most important, Docky is ultimate search and action performer tool for almost everything on your computer (with plugins). It doesn't have advanced MacOS dock notifications but we can expect more improvements in feature releases. Read more about Docky here.
