the MATE Packaging Team is proud to announce that MATE 1.8 has now
fully arrived in Debian.
The MATE desktop environment is a fork of what was formerly known as
the GNOME v2 desktop environment. The MATE upstream developers have
performed a really good job in integrating the old GNOME code with
latest technologies like DConf an GSettings. The next upcoming release
of MATE (which will be the 1.10 series) will also have GTK3 support
(if things go well!). During the last 6 months several people have
worked on the provisioning of MATE packages in Debian.
The initial workload has now been completed!!! \o/ PARTY!!!
I.e.: all MATE packages have been uploaded to Debian unstable (and all
packages have successfully migrated to Debian testing already). Some
days back, the team provided uploads to wheezy-backports, so feel free
to test MATE on Debian wheezy, if you like, as well.
@Testers: a basic MATE desktop gets installed via the meta package
"mate-desktop-environment". A wider range of extra tools/applets/etc.
gets pulled in via the meta package "mate-desktop-environment-extras".
@Testers2: We wait for your bug reports (and patches!)...
I personally want to take this email as an opportunity to thank all
the people involved in the recent packaging work. It's always
dangerous to name people, because those lists have the risk of being
incomplete, but still I want to mention a few people who really helped
a lot with this pile of packages. Great appreciation to you guys!!!:
