Avant Window Navigator (Awn) 0.2 was just released, and there is no doubt that it is one of the best looking docks I’ve seen on any operating system. There is a video below that shows all of the cool icon effects, including the sweet reflection. Before we get into that let’s take a look at what’s new:
- Icon effects – choose whether your icons bounce like cartoon characters, spin like a coin, or have a spotlight cast on them.
- Awn Manager – a unified interface for managing all of the settings Awn has to offer.
- Applets – you’ll soon be able to get things like weather, system information, and more all from the comfort of your own dock. Things like Stacks and a clock are also in the works.
Below is a video that demonstrates the various icon effects, and you better sit down if you haven’t seen it before. The 3D turning with the spotlight is my favorite.
