Ubuntu MATE 16.10 Alpha 1 Arrives with MATE 1.14 Built Entirely Against GTK 3.18

Powered by the same Linux 4.4 LTS kernel as Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus), the first Alpha of Ubuntu MATE 16.10 ships with the MATE 1.14 desktop environment, which has been built entirely against the GTK+ 3.18 GUI toolkit to be less resource hungry, much-improved versions of the MATE Tweak, Software Boutique, MATE Dock Applet, MATE Menu, and Ubuntu MATE Welcome in-house built tools.
