The elementary OS team published version 7.0 of their distribution just over a month ago and have been working on improvements to the user interface. Some of the key changes over the past month have focused on the file manager and network indicator widget: "The network indicator has been getting some major design attention and now offers a much better experience for using VPNs. You'll notice that most options now appear as circular toggle buttons with icons instead of a list of switches. This new design both saves space on devices with complex network configurations and shows the status of your various connections much clearer, including intermediate and error states. In the case of VPNs, you can now also activate multiple connections at once. We've also added quick access to toggling Airplane Mode, including a middle-click action on the indicator icon. Plus, we're now using a feature of Network Manager to automatically get better device names so you'll rarely see long and cryptic device names any longer." Additional details can be found in the project's blog post.
