As usual, @Wimpy & UMATE stole the show, with this write-up, too!
The new Mutiny feature has certainly proven a media sensation, with all of the new articles I have seen; you cannot buy this kind of advertising - a genuine PR coup:
"Don't panic, MATE traditionalists – the Mutiny panel layout is entirely optional. And, it's also not actually Unity. It uses two panels styled to recreate the look of Unity. The result is actually quite nice, even if you don't particularly like Unity... [and it] does a good job of mimicking the same panel in Unity. At the top there's a menu item which, instead of opening the Unity shell, gives you access to all the MATE menus."
