I’m taking this opportunity to relay two pieces of Cinnamon news to the Linux Mint community.

These technologies are brand new and we do not recommend you upgrade to them.
Cinnamon is a LinuxMint project, a fork of Gnome Shell. Cinnamon comes with a Gnome2-like panel at bottom, with classic menu, favourite apps, and system tray icons on it. Cinnamon also has Gnome Shell Activity icon on top-left with “Windows & Themes”.
Cinnamon just released 1.1.3 version few hours ago with improvements of menu, panel launcher, etc.
I recently upgraded to Cinnamon 2.0 on my Linux mint 13 cinnamon edition (x64) using cinnamon stable repository. I heard that now Gnome is not the back-end of latest version of Cinnamon. So what necessary tweaks i can do to save my space on hardisk & to tuneup my installation. Like in latest version cinnamon used Nemo as File explorer than Nautilus.
Cinnamon is the default desktop environment in the Linux Mint. Cinnamon 1.6 is coming out soon with new cool and innovative features (see the picture). This simple tutorial is going to show you how to install Cinnamon 1.6 in Ubuntu 12.10 & 12.04.
Install Cinnamon 1.6 from PPA:
Before Cinnamon 1.6 going to stable, you can install it from the nightly build ppa.
Cinnamon 2.0.6, a Linux desktop environment based on GNOME 2 which provides new features while preserving a more conventional approach, has been released. The 2.x branch of Cinnamon was released just a couple of weeks ago and the developers have already issued a number of patches. This is the sixth in the series and we suspect that there are more to come.
