The AWN developers releases a new version of Synapse a.k.a. “Acetylcholine”. Synapse is a app launcher written in Vala that you can use to start applications as well as find and access relevant documents and files by making use of the Zeitgeist engine. It is similar to “Gnome Do” and has almost the same features.
Among the new plugins released are calculator, pastebin, Imgur to upload images and a selection plugin which allows you to perform actions on selected text. Synapse also allows you search by type: with a few click you can search through all the video files, audio files, folders or text.

sudo apt-get install synapse pastebinit
To start Synapse just go to Applications -> Accessories -> Synapse , once started you can use CTRL + SPACE to launch.
