Hi CM,

I salute the advent of 0.7.8 (cinnamon 2.8 compatible + other improvements). Cinnamon is really worth your attention.
I've been thinking a lot after 0.7.7 and I intended to feedback consistently about the long term sustainability of the project.
At the core of my thoughts (among others) was precisely Cinnamon 2.8. Win 10 theme's objective is to bring Linux as close as possible to the well-known OS and no other DE seems to be more suitable to that purpose. Let me say it again: your work is very much appreciated. Thank you!

Hi,

That's weird. But have you changed the theme in both appearance and window manager?

Also, is that xfce for debian? Maybe they have a more recent version than I do. Would you mind trying out the dark version to see if that one has a problem? If it's the case I'll have to check both versions.

Hey!

I am really sorry, I really am. I did not change window manager first time. I did not think I had to do so. Now it looks great!

Thank you bro :]

Important Message to Those on XFCE

0.7.7 stable is probably just around the corner.
So if any of you has anything to point out please do it now.
There's extensive coverage on GitHub. Please read through the stuff before posting otherwise we're just waisting the developer's time.

Thank You All

Hi CM,

I would like to address 2 direct questions:

1. When to expect 0.7.7 stable?
2. Does 0.7.7 bring anything new as to Cinnamon?

Thank you in advance and looking forward to 0.7.7 stable.

PS: although I'm rather impaciently waiting for it, please take your time; no need to hurry.

No new stuff for Cinnamon, except maybe reset the transparency level.

0.7.7 will be released when the XFCE issue is fixed (althought on my try on Debian XFCE I had no problems)

It's Cinnamon 2.6. You can then add other stuff. But I think that you can install panels on other distros as well

I knew I had to include autosize in the dock...

I'll have to search for the calendar color but I think that will be easy to find
