Cinnamon 2.4 to Feature New Theme Selection and Options for Linux Mint 17.1

Cinnamon is the default desktop environment in Linux Mint and it's built by the same developers who are making the Linux distro. It stands to reason that the best implementation for Cinnamon will be on Linux Mint. It's also the place that integrates the latest updates for Cinnamon as soon as they are made available. Usually, the latest iterations of Cinnamon are integrated quickly in Mint, but the developers are also working on an updated Linux Mint version, 17.1.

GNOME: 3.14 almost there

Speaking of gedit, after the major changes of 3.12, 3.14 has been a cycle focused on stabilization and polishing. Overall the revised user interface got mostly positve feedback.. I for one, as a heavy gedit user, adapted to the new UI without problems. 3.14 will have a few incremental changes, that among other things try to address some of the issues pointed out by Jim Hall’s usability study presented at GUADEC: “Open” will be a single button removing the dichotomy between the open dialog and recent files and providing quick search among recent files. “Save” now uses a text label since it turns out a lot of people did not grok the icon (and no, I am not going back to the floppy image!) and the view menu has been reorganized and now uses a popover. With regard to the “Open” button, we know things are not perfect yet, search among recent is great, but when the “cache misses”, going through a double step is painful… we already have a few ideas on how to improve that next cycle, but for now I can vividly recommend to try the “quickopen” plugin, one of the hidden gems of gedit, which already provides some of the things we would like to integrate in the next iteration.
