I’m taking this opportunity to relay two pieces of Cinnamon news to the Linux Mint community.
Cinnamon 1.6 preview
The upcoming Cinnamon 1.6 was given a quick preview at http://cinnamon.linuxmint.com/?p=195
Nemo was announced as the new file browser for Cinnamon: http://cinnamon.linuxmint.com/?p=198
Cinnamon 1.6 (along with Muffin 1.1.0 and Nemo 1.0.1) was released yesterday. You can read the release announcement and an overview of the new features at: http://cinnamon.linuxmint.com/?p=207
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.
