New in Ubuntu 9.04: Screen-profiles, the Enhanced GNU Screen

My recent discovery: Ubuntu 9.04 comes with screen-profiles, a command-line “GUI” enhancement based on curses. If you have been using GNU-Screen for a while, but have always been too lazy to configure the display (or any other part of the program), you might enjoy this tool.

Lorna Jane posted a nice summary about screen-profiles.

Side note: This tool was actually developed by Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu.
