As you can see in the preview card above, Cinnamon 1.6 is going to be a massive step forward. The codebase is now much smaller and much cleaner, a huge number of bugs have been fixed, most of the things people asked after 1.4 was released were implemented and we added some really cool and innovative features.
The very first 1.6 release will be 1.6.0. It will be followed by a rapid succession of point releases (1.6.1, 1.6.2) as we receive feedback from users, applet developers and theme artists and as we identify eventual bugs and fix issues on the 1.6 branch.
If you’re interested in following the project and running the very latest builds of Cinnamon (we’re currently at version 1.5.3) don’t hesitate to follow us on https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon and at #linuxmint-dev (irc.spotchat.org).
