Eject 3.0.0 has been released, Eject is a simple menu that sits in the system notification area, providing you a quick way to unmount external peripherals such as usb pendrives, cd/dvd, external hard disks and so.
It sits in background and shows an icon in the system tray when one or more peripherals are connected to your pc: once clicked it a window appears with the list of the devices (volume name and device type, much clearer than the similar thing available on Windows) and the related eject button.

This new release is Karmic-compatible release. Dropped Hal for libgdu, many bugs fixed and translations updated. this has been tested only on Ubuntu Karmic (9.10) alpha 6 and later. This means that it quite certainly won’t compile on Jaunty or other distributions featuring similar software versions.

Download and install Eject 3.0.0:

To install eject you  needs Gtk, libgdu (from gnome-disk-utility), plus Vala and Python only at compile-time.
Install :

First download eject :

Then exctract it using the command :

tar -jxvf ejecter-0.3.0.tar.bz2

then change to eject directory

cd ejecter-0.3.0

Now run these commands :

./waf configure --prefix=/usr

and install

sudo ./waf install

Now you can run Eject from the command-line by typing “ejecter” or add it to startup applications:
it will sleep behind the scenes and show an icon in the system tray when one or more devices are connected to your computer.
