Cinnamon 2.6 is the next major release of the Cinnamon desktop environment developed and maintained by the Linux Mint team. The new version is already available for testing in Romeo (unstable) repository of Linux Mint and LMDE, according their latest blog entry.
If you want to beta-test Cinnamon 2.6:
- Launch Software Sources (mintsources) from your application menu
- Tick the âUnstable packages (romeo)â checkbox
- Click the âUpdate the cacheâ button
- Use the Update Manager to upgrade the Cinnamon packages (donât forget the cjs and muffin packages)
Please note that it’s not the final release and bugs will arise. I haven’t tried it yet, so I’m not aware of how stable it is and what the new features are. If you tried it, please write your opinionÂ in the comments section below.
