A new version of the popular MATE desktop environment for Linux is out. Let's see which features to expect from version 1.14.
As you might be knowing, MATE is a fork of Gnome 2 with a traditional Desktop interface like a taskbar, system tray and apps menu. MATE is developed along with Linux Mint, which is the most popular Linux distro according to DistroWatch.com.
Here are key changes in this release.
- Improved GTK+3 support across the entire MATE Desktop.
- Full GTK 3.20 support in all MATE themes.
