The developer of Ubuntu Tweak, Tualatrix announced that the development and maintenance of Ubuntu Tweak will be continued and released Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.1 with bug fixes and Love Wallpaper HD.

Since the release of Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.0, the “Apps” feature brings the high network traffic and much more works on maintaining and optimizing server and client. Tualatrix announced the stopping of Ubuntu Tweak’s development due to it’s hard to find a way to balance his current work, ubuntu-tweak project and his life, then he changed his mind. See the announcement. The “Apps” won’t work in version 0.8.1 until the network traffic/bandwidth issue fixed.
