Brisk Menu 0.5 Released with Support for Favorites and Actions, App Pinning

Brisk Menu 0.5 appears to be a major update coming five months after the last maintenance update to the 0.4 series, bringing highly requested features like a new Favourites category where users can pin their favorite apps simply by right-clicking on an item, support for .desktop file actions in the context menu, as well as the ability to pin and unpin app from the desktop. With this release, Brisk Menu became more modular, which means that it only depends on the mate-panel-applet APIs for the applet component and the rest of the codebase has been split into multiple, independent modules. The team promises to expand this modularity in upcoming releases of Brisk Menu by adding base classes to the frontends and introduce a new “dash” frontend.
