MATE 1.14 and Cinnamon 3.0 for Slackware 14.2

Just hours since Slackware 14.2 is released, we proudly present to you MATE 1.14 and Cinnamon 3.0 for Slackware 14.2 users!!! We have been working under the hood of testing these two projects since they were released last April.

The binary packages are compiled against Slackware 14.2 official ISO and it's now uploaded to the usual repository in http://slackware.uk/msb and http://slackware.uk/csb. Thanks to Darren Austin for providing a place to host these two projects.

The website for MSB have been updated with latest information about the new release and we have added a new website for CSB as well (Thanks to Chess Griffin for permission to use the template from MSB website). Please visit the website for screenshots and other information.


Notes on MATE:
  • This is a mix build between GTK+2/3 as upstream is moving some MATE components to GTK+3 only
  • Future release will bring more GTK+3 only MATE components
Both projects are hosted in github (msb, csb) and gitlab (msb, csb). Feel free to submit pull/merge requests or report a bug in the issue tracker.
