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.
