There is very little left for the new version of Linux Mint 18 to come out and while that is happening, Cinnamon, The default project desktop has a new maintenance version rather than inclusion of novelties.
Cinnamon 3.0.4 is a bug fix and many bugs the desktop is having. It is not the first maintenance version but rather the fourth version that comes out in order to fix a lot of bugs and make the desktop more useful and usable for all users.Cinnamon 3 is a version that came out a few weeks ago for other distributions other than Linux Mint, this desktop can be installed and used on Ubuntu 16.04 or any other version of Ubuntu as well as in any GNU / Linux distribution.
Cinnamon 3.0.4 fixes issues related to sound and menu applets
In this version, Cinnamon 3.0.4 fixes errors related to sound and menu applets. In recent days several users have reported that Cinnamon 3 does not do well with graphical transitions when moving or removing applets. The same goes for the menu applet. Another change in this new version is the modification of the application finder that now allows you to evade accents and capital letters when searching for applications.
Despite all this, Cinnamon 3 still has issues to fix and that I hope it will be fixed before launching the new Linux Mint 18 distribution. So for several days I tried this new desktop and ran into the problem of no shutdown button, but had to log out and from there turn off the system. It’s a silly mistake that I hope will be corrected, but that many users won’t forgive. In any case the Linux Mint computer is not idle and is working on improving this popular desktopSo we will see positive results in a few days don’t you think?
