Cinnamon 4.2 to be Available

A new release of Cinnamon will be offered in the Linux Mint 19.2 distribution, which is scheduled for release in the nearest future

After nine months of development, a release of the Cinnamon 4.2 user environment has been formed, within which the Linux Mint distribution developer community is developing fork of the GNOME Shell shell, Nautilus file manager and window manager Mutter, aimed at providing the classic GNOME 2 environment with support for successful interaction elements from GNOME Shell . Cinnamon relies on GNOME components, but these components are shipped as a periodically synchronized fork, not bound by external dependencies to GNOME.

A new release of Cinnamon will be offered in the Linux Mint 19.2 distribution, which is scheduled for release in the coming months. In the near future, packages will be prepared that can be installed in the Linux Mint and Ubuntu from the PPA-repository, without waiting for the new version of Linux Mint.

These are main features:

  • New widgets for creating configurators, simplifying the writing of configuration dialogs and making their design more complete and consistent with the Cinnamon interface was added
  • The search bar is moved to the top in MintMenu, .
  • The Nemo file manager simplifies the process of sharing directories with Samba.
  • Some changes are ported to the Muffin window manager from the Metacity window manager developed by the GNOME project.
  • An applet for printing has been added to the main composition, which is now launched by default.
  • Some internal components were reviewed and simplified, such as DocInfo (processing of recently opened documents) and AppSys (parsing application metadata, identifying application icons, defining entries for menus, etc.)
