the announcement just showed up on distrowatch in the section Latest Distributions

I'm trying Cinnamon 16.02 on live USB, it runs smoothly on my low powered machine.
I'm not exactly keen on installing one more DE, but Cinnamon would be a candidate if Budgie breaks.  ^-^
One "bug": I changed the theme to Vertex-Maia-Square and the main menu gets transparent black, 90% maybe. Is this intentional? Maybe I would need to relogin?

It's the design of the theme, yes ;D But of course you can mix. Actually I like that, too when I use vertex maia square as the window theme I set the regular vertex maia as the cinnamon-theme...

Surprises me. Maybe that's more a question of the graphics driver... Or are you running it in software-rendering mode?
I was quite surprised when I made that little youtube video, that my other machine was having quite a hard time with window effects - even Deepin would run smoother on that machine! :o

I like it better than the other theme with two colours in the menu, but would prefer to disable transparency or make it almost invisible. But it is actually very nice! The other theme I don't like very much, but Cinnamon users are more used to the default look.

The cinnamon edition keeps on getting better with each release really anymore I think cinnamon is the best desktop on Linux especially on arch where both gnome and KDE are always in flux especially KDE which remains a royal mess

I tried to look what additional panel applets are available from the internet with its built-in dialog. I got  an error with tha panel full of small notification windows "Connection timed out" which wouldn't close with clicking "OK" or Alt+F4. Needed to re-login to get rid of them.

Hm, @eugen-b , I have just double checked. This works fine for me - maybe it was a temporary problem with the connection? Of course still no reason to spam your panel like that ;) Anyway I can't reproduce this here ...  ???

Yes...works...wonderful :)
Is this now persistent for you @maclinuxfree?
On my system this method turned out to be a bit messy. My old values would still show up in dconf-editor and sometimes the Cinnamon- or Gnome default wallpaper would appear :o
As a really clean way to do this I have figured out the following procedure:

OK, you guys have now been running this for a couple of days.  How is it?

My compliments, a great release!

One request though: Please (re)create the release with the newest 4.4 kernel.
Then it would work out of the box with my XPS 13 9350 and probably other skylake laptops too.

Now I had to flddle a bit around to boot with the i915.preliminary_hw_support=1, then connect a LAN cable and update the kernel.
Only after that everything (including wifi) worked.

keep the good work going!

Hi birdibird and welcome! :)
The plan is that Manjaro switches to 4.4 with the 16.06 release. Right now this would still a bit premature I think.
A lot of hardware is still not running it smoothly afaik - including my own laptop ;)
I'm sorry that it was a bit of a hassle for you to get Cinnamon working on your machine - Thank you for bothering to do it anyway! :D

No worries :)
I realize indeed this was my first post, lol.
I am not new here, though, have been running various Manjaro releases on various machines for quite a while now.

Ah, yes of course, the switch to 4.4 on 16.06 release, I noticed it on the dev release of KDE

Manjaro is addictive indeed ;)

Hi guys,

I've been using Manjaro for almost 2 years and now I've decided to try out the Cinnamon edition. I must say that it's really great overall so congrats to the team.

Alas, I have encountered 2 nagging issues that I don't know how to deal with, the first one is that I cannot change the desktop wallpaper, I've tried the normal way and through right clicking an image in Firefox but both methods failed (fixed it by renaming the default maia.jpg wallpaper to maia.jpgbak). The second problem that I have is that Ctrl + Alt + T combination that launches the Terminal doesn't work, as a matter of fact it doesn't work with any other combination either. I'm really clueless here because I had no such problems when using the Xfce edition.
