Ubuntu MATE 16.10 Hits the Streets with MATE 1.16 Desktop and GTK+ 3 Goodness

Shipping with Linux kernel 4.8 and the newest MATE 1.16 desktop environment based on the latest GTK+ 3.20 technologies, Ubuntu MATE 16.10 is probably the most important milestone of the official Ubuntu flavor built around the MATE Desktop, a continuation of the beloved GNOME 2 interface that was used Ubuntu Linux until the launch of the modern Unity UI. Being re-worked from scratch, more or less, Ubuntu MATE 16.10 ships with the ability for users to uninstall default applications without issues. The release includes up-to-date in-house built tools like Ubuntu MATE Artwork 16.10.9 and Ubuntu MATE Welcome 16.10.10, both of which contain a large number of changes that you can view in the official release notes.
