The new version of Linux Mint is very close to being released and as usual, Cinnamon, your favorite desktop, now has a new version and is available to everyone.

Cinnamon 3.4 is the new and latest version of this desktop. This new version brings many changes, but above all they are changes aimed at user productivity. Make Cinnamon more functional for the user and not have to use third-party applications that can slow down the operation.

Linux Mint 18.2 will stop using MDM to switch to LightDM, causing Cinnamon 3.4 to include multiple files and tools to configure and communicate with this session manager. Various widgets have been included that report on the status of the system or the status of the battery. The "Run Now" option has been moved to be more logical for users, allowing you to run any application from the context menu.

Cinnamon 3.4 adds old functions in distributions like Manjaro or Arch Linux

But not only Linux Mint is the distribution that Cinnamon uses, it is also used by other distributions and that is why another of the big changes affects Cinnamon 3.4 for Manjaro. This version will contain new tools and supports. So the user you can manage mouse sensitivity or enable CSD multithreaded (Client Side Decorations). Features that Cinnamon had but was not versioned for Arch Linux-based distributions.

In addition, the bugs and problems found have been fixed. like the problem that existed when displaying notifications with the screen in full mode. The design look has also been tweaked. In this case, cursors and new wallpapers have been added.

Cinnamon 3.4 will be coming to your computer if you have a rolling release distribution. If you have a normal distribution, you have to wait for new versions or install it through an external repository. Or you can download the code from the github repository.

    I am amused by the article, it does nothing but corroborate what I always say, linux only serves to write letters
    Almost everything you read about linux is: "we already solved this, but we still have this other one" .. and if you have this, the other does not work for you, but if you add this maybe you will solve it ...
    And I am not against whoever wants that, everyone is free to occupy their time in whatever they want, against what I am, it is against deceiving those who believe it, and that with the flag of independence and free software They make you waste years of useless time to understand that Linux is a mirage
    Unless your need is to write letters or emails, that's great!

      I don't understand this absurd hater intervention. In Windows and in IOS there are also constant and constant bug fixes and they need patch solutions eventually, And a Windows 10 user tells you, I see it coming.

      Hello. Linux is no mirage. Linux is for the savvy. It is to make it run with code through the keyboard. And yes, you are right. Using Linux as a user is wasting time. ?

    For 10 years I have been using various versions of Linux for all my daily needs, apart from writing letters.
    I use spreadsheets, do graphic editing work, surf the Internet, pay my bills, etc.

    I respectfully say that you should not criticize something that is ignored

    I hope that these improvements have to do with the fact that the "hot corners" can be used in full screen mode and that the wallpapers in slideshow mode are changed not only in minutes but also in seconds ... I hope the update will arrive soon for my arch !!
