The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems. After a little struggle we decided to maintain MATE on our own, since Archlinux has no active maintainer anymore for this destkop environment.

The headline changes in MATE 1.14 are:

  * Improved GTK+3 support across the entire MATE Desktop.
  * Full GTK 3.20 support in all MATE themes.
  * Client Side Decorated applications render correctly in all themes.
  * Completely ported MATE System Monitor and Mozo to GTK+3 only (we ship v1.12 for gtk2 branch).
  * Touchpad configuration now supports edge and two-finger scrolling independently.
  * Python extensions in Caja can now be managed separately.
  * All three window focus modes are selectable.
  * MATE Panel now has the ability to change icon sizes for menubar and menu items.
  * MATE NetSpeed Applet has been merged into the MATE Applets package.
  * MATE Terminal support VTE 2.91 API when built for GTK+3.
  * Volume and Brightness OSD can now be enabled/disabled.
  * Translations are updated.

Additionally we created a Manjaro live-media you can use to test this new version of MATE without messing with your current installation. We used the **unstable** branch for creating these ISO-images. Report back any issues you may find with this release.

kind regards, Philip Müller, and the Manjaro development team
