The app menu entries that are present on the Mac do not appear on Linux. Some of these commands need to be available on all platforms (like cleaning up preferences).

In 663a8e77d5c9cfefb637056dd6ebf23ea7e67b84 temporarily exposed the ShowPrefs (clear preferences) plugin in the File menu,

Going forward we still need to write platform specific application menus (mac, win, linux).

Curtis, didn't you find a solution for the location of app plugins on different platforms?

The current code properly locates the app plugins in the menus, except on OS X in which case they are relocated to the Application menu. This is done in  MacOSXPlatform in the removeAppPluginsFromMenu method.
