Cinnamon 3.0 Desktop Environment Tagged for Linux Mint 18, Here’s What’s New

With updated dependencies on board and numerous bug fixes, Cinnamon 3.0 comes with multiple new features, among which we can mention an option that lets users display or hide the favbox in the Menu applet, the addition of new default application buttons, as well as support for displaying the panel-launchers actions.

The Sound settings have been rewritten in Python, and there’s a custom page that shows users when there’s no input devices available or if any apps are now playing. Additionally, the Sound panel received a custom settings box that should prevent the sound effects dialog to be opened in a very tall window.
