HISTORY

In late 2010, this project was registered on Sourceforge.net. Since November 2011, documentation is contributed. As December 2011, Customizer development has moved to GitHub and has been tested thoroughly on Ubuntu 10.04(Lucid Lynx). One year later, as December 2012, Customizer stable release has hit 3.2.3.

Presently re-written from scratch with the goal to support Ubuntu releases newer than 12.04 and making it more stable and robust.
