I'm stuck at finding something else to include. It's sad when the only thing left is bugtracking :(

There will be 0.8, it's just the when that's bugging me.

Greetings,

OKAY. Please tell: what's that you want to include? Is it artwork?
If it is, please tell: what items specifically are you looking for? The answer to this is important to be of pinpoint accuracy. Just list it out. I'm sure we can find or create what you are looking for. And yes, do not ignore this post.

"It's sad when the only thing left is bugtracking"
It's not like, let's just hunt down those bugs and we're done. This project has to and will evolve, just like the "well-known" does.
I perceive the "well-known" as rolling release, in perpetual evolution and adaptation (UI and feature wise). The difference is that here, one has control over his or her system. Freedom of choice comes with a headache though, but it is still better than being spoonfed and said like: "no need to think, we'll take care of you".

Of course 0.8 (please don't rush it; give it time) and Makulu Aero 10 (it promises more than just Aero which is dated by my taste). The latter is off topic but worth mentioning nonetheless.

Hi CM,

If I recall right, you once said that you might also improve on the icon pack. Anything to expect in the near future? Some of my questions are just sticky notes. No need to answer.

Hi Everyone,

0.8 might be in the making right now. So if you have anything to say, just say it now!


Thank You All

Hi CM,

I suggest to test it on Mint 17.3. Also, Zerophase pointed out some warnings concerning some gtk which is going to be phased out in the near future. It was a while ago and I don't know whether the code has been updated or not. Not intending to be an annoyance. Please take it lightly. Thank you.

Hi CM,

Do you intend to include other changes in Cinnamon as well, or just the start menu little more to the left as desired by Zerophase?

Thank you

Current content. Done.

Hi,

That's all nice and good but comparative analysis is just that. I think it's the developer who should post some checksums alongside his content. Otherwise one can't really tell if you've got what he's got beyond reasonable doubt. I'll run comparative though and let you know whether they match. Thanks for the effort. Not everyone is into checksums though and might consider all that rather spamy.
