Only one bug left!?
by clem 7

There’s only one bug left holding the release of Cinnamon 1.8…

On some hardware specs, visual artefacts appear in the main menu when selecting “All applications” or the “Preferences” category.

I can reproduce the problem on one of the laptops here, so we should be able to fix it fast. The next Cinnamon meeting is on Monday and I’m hoping we’ll be in a position to release 1.8.

    Looking forward to this – great vision and work, thank you Clem and the Linux Mint team. Will this also work on Mint 14 or do we need to wait for Mint Olivia?

      Mint 13 is the LTS, so the focus would be primarily on getting a great Mint 15 release and then on backporting to Mint 13. After that we can look into backporting to Mint 14… we’ve got an automated build system for this, but it comes down to focus and testing, no promises here.

      With that said, it’s likely to get into Romeo, for both Maya and Nadia, once 1.8.0 is out and prior to Mint 15 being released.

    Lovely. :) Although I still use MATE, I always keep an eye on Cinnamon, because it’s very tempting even for a conservative guy like me. :P Well actually I prefer snappy UIs and so far MATE fits the bill better than most DMs, without losing functionality. Looking forward for Monday! :D

    That is the great news! Looking forward to try it. So far it is one the best interfaces.

    Not really a bug, but will there be someday an option in the cinnamon-settings center to ignore the free spaces between the screen/panel edges and dialog boxes ??.
