Ubuntu One Music Store
Ubuntu users have access to purchase popular music from all of their favorite artists that make up an expanding catalog of millions of songs available in the Ubuntu One Music Store.

Ensure that your computer is setup for sync and launch the store in Rhythmbox for a cloud-enabled shopping experience.

All subscribers now have more control over their synchronization settings. Launch the Ubuntu One Preferences application to view current personal cloud storage usage, link to support options, manage synchronizing computers, and even control which Ubuntu One features are synchronized on the machine you are currently using.

Sync any folder and file publishing

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Ubuntu One users running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS will have access to two great new features (among many others).

Sync any folder
You no longer have to put everything that you want synchronized into the Ubuntu One folder. Right-click on any folder in your home directory and choose "Synchronize on Ubuntu One". Now the folder will sync with your personal cloud and your other computers. If the same folder exists on your other computers, the contents will be merged. Now it's easy to sync your Documents, Music, Pictures, or any folder in your home directory.

File publishing
Ubuntu One already supports sharing folders with specific people who are also Ubuntu One subscribers. We now enable you to publish your files for anyone to see. We call it file publishing and it even comes with a convenient short URL to send to all of your friends. Right-click on any synchronizing file and choose "Publish via Ubuntu One". Right-click again and choose "Copy Ubuntu One public URL" to add the short URL to your clipboard. Now you can sync, share and publish... directly from your Ubuntu desktop.
