ClassicMenu Indicator

ClassicMenu Indicator is a notification area applet (application indicator) for the top panel of Ubuntu's Unity desktop environment. It provides a simple way to get a classic GNOME-style application menu for those who prefer this over the Unity dash menu. Like the classic GNOME menu, it includes Wine games and applications if you have those installed.

    Release Notes: This release uses $XDG_MENU_PREFIX to find desktop-specific menu definitions. This fixes the menu, for example, on Xubuntu. The items in the "ClassicMenu Indicator" are on all desktops, and there are some new items to change the configuration, e.g. to get the old icon back. This release adds Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Galician, Greek, Norwegian Bokmal, Spanish, Swedish, Telugu, and Turkish translations.
