It’s been over a month since Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and all its official flavors were officially released. The next version will be a 16.10 Yakkety Yak that will arrive in October, but most developers have already set to work to prepare this version. This is the case of the computer behind Ubuntu MAT which, as such has announced Martin Wimpress on their Google Plus profile page, they are already working for Ubuntu MAT 16.10.
But that they are working on the next version does not mean that the current version will not receive more news. In fact, as Wimpress tells us, Software Boutique and the Ubuntu MAT 16.04 LTS welcome screen have been updated including some interesting news, such as Boutique software now comes with an option called Boutique Engine that allows us to search for applications and launch, update or delete them from the same screen.
Ubuntu MAT 16.10 will arrive with news in Software Boutique
But from here I would like to give a listen to the Ubuntu MAT team: personally, and this is my personal opinion, I do not like Software Boutique. It’s software that looks great on Ubuntu MAT, but I recommend some apps I already know and, what’s worse, it doesn’t find many of the packages that interest me. For example, as you can see in the image above post, When looking for a package that I do not have installed and is not included in Software Boutique tells me to install some software center, so I ask myself: what is the use of Software Boutique then? The interesting thing would be that it would allow me to forget at least Ubuntu Software, No?
On the other hand, the welcome screen for version 16.10 has also been updated and now shows a new category called News Store which promises to keep us informed about the software changes implemented in each release. We hope that one of the news that we talk about in this section is that Software Boutique no longer invites us to install a software center to look for some packages.
