It was just a few weeks ago that the Linux Mint project's new Cinnamon desktop was declared officially stable--just a few short months since it was born, in fact--but on Wednesday the project team behind it unveiled a major new release packed with several new tools.
"We've been reading your feedback with a lot of attention," wrote founder and lead developer Clement Lefebvre in the official announcement of the new release. "Most of the things you've asked made it to this release."
Featuring almost 270 changes since the last version debuted, Cinnamon 1.4 is available for Linux distributions including not just Mint 12 but also Ubuntu 11.10, Fedora 16, OpenSUSE 12.1, Arch Linux, Gentoo, and Frugalware. Download instructions are included on the software's download page.
