"Highlights: New "Suggestions" feature, keyboard shortcut, trash status

"mintMenu lets you filter the list of applications to quickly access what you're looking for. A new feature called "Suggestions" was introduced in Linux Mint 7: When filtering gives no results the menu now shows a set of suggestions related to what is being searched.

"This makes it easier to install new applications or packages on the fly or to search the portal or the repositories, directly from the menu itself.

"The menu can now be opened from the keyboard by pressing the left Control key and the left Super key (Windows key) simultaneously. This is configurable of course so you can assign it any key you want (note that you'll need to restart the menu for this take effect). The menu also closes itself when either the Super key or the escape key are pressed."
