Raffaele, thanks for the feedback.
An alpha-2 installation on pc displayed software-properties in dash.
As workaround on laptop I've edited the .desktop file entry 'NoDisplay=false'.
A different behaviour is also documented in bug 930972.

Even when it was in g-c-c you had to launch it from another application (g-c-c) , even then you didn't know the name of the application you were using. Now software-properties is reachable from update-manager in the settings section so the behavior seems about the same to me.

I fixed this via alacarte, found its launcher under System Tools -> Preferences.
After relogin software-properties was avaible in dash.

As of version 0.90, it's shown in in g-c-c and in the dash. This bug is fixed for at least Quantal. An update is going into Precise to fix bug 828850, but I'm not totally sure yet if it will contain these changes to the .desktop file, too.
