Package: mate-desktop
Version: 1.16.1-1
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

I know that Debian is in full-freeze at the current state of affairs
so it probably is not possible to release the just released mate 1.18
on sid/unstable and hence maybe an attempt to release it to
experimental can be made.

The below blog post shares the changes between the new and the old versions -


Also with the recent new build of gtk+3.0 it might also make sense to
have the new release in experimental


Looking forward to seeing mate 1.18 in experimental.
