MATE 1.8 Arrives with a Bang and Window Snapping

The team that develops the MATE desktop environment has announced that a new stable version has been released, 1.8, featuring a large number of changes and improvements.

There are a lot of changes and improvements in the MATE 1.8 release, but we’ll try to detail the major ones. The Caja file manager is the first one on the list and has received two new options, one to use IEC units instead of SI units and to get ???Open parent location??? option in the search view context menu.
