Canonical have released version 1.0
of their Ubuntu multi-touch and gesture stack.

UTouch 1.0 allows multi-touch and gestures on Ubuntu, and
consists of an open source gesture recognition engine and a gesture
API.

Canonical are confident that this is the way forward for the IT
industry. “The world’s expectations of software experience are
being raised by advances in mobile computing. We are bringing that
revolution to the Linux desktop: for window management and
applications. Though our work at the application level has only
just started, we are certain that multi-touch and gestures will be
central to the way we use Linux applications in future,” reads the
announcement.
