In my opinion “Cinnamon” is one of the best that exist for Linux desktops, as it is a midpoint between Unity and Gnome2 (by proposing an example) and that generates some very good effects and performance (as with Unity) and also generates low consumption of resources and resembles something flat and simple (as for GNOME 2)

On behalf of the team and all the developers who contributed to this build, I am proud to announce the release of Cinnamon 1.6.1 (as well as Muffin 1.1.1 and Nemo 1.0.2)!

Cinnamon 1.6.1 is a point release which addresses bugs and refines features present in Cinnamon 1.6.0.

Changes in Cinnamon 1.6.1:

  • Updated translations
  • Added country flags in keyboard applet
  • Added Songbird support in sound applet
  • Fixed: Administration category missing from the application menu
  • Fixed: Blurry pixels in Alt-Tab preview
  • Fixed: Removing workspace while editing its name results in crash
  • Fixed: Scrolling in window list applet brings all windows to the active workspace
  • Fixed: Panels visible in Firefox fullscreen mode x-shockwave-flash video
  • Fixed: Two issues with dnd and themes using different background for hovering
  • Performance improvement: Cinnamon no longer fetches the pointer actor if track_hover is not set
  • Performance improvement: Network Manager applet consumes less CPU usage
  • Performance improvement: Calendar applet consumes less CPU usage

Changes in Muffin 1.1.1:
