What’s new in MATE 1.12

The headline changes in MATE 1.12 are:

  • Fixes and improvements for GTK3 support across the entire MATE Desktop including GTK 3.18 support.
  • Touchpad support is significantly improved and now features multi touch and natural scrolling.
  • Multi monitor support has been improved so the display settings use output names and the revised UI lets you set the primary monitor.
  • The power applet now displays model and vendor information so you can distinguish between multiple battery powered devices.
  • Improved session management which now includes screensaver inhibition while playing media.
    • MATE now listens to the org.gnome.SessionManager namespace.
  • Extended systemd support.
  • Long standing bugs and many little usability paper-cuts were fixed.
    • For example, panel applets are no longer reordered when changing screen resolutions.
  • Translations updated and a number of components now retrieve strings directly from gschema (requires intltool 0.50.1).
  • Dropped support for win32 and osx.
