Ubuntu MATE 16.04 Beta 1 is released

Today marks the release of Ubuntu MATE 16.04 Xenial Xerus Beta 1, full of new additions, fixes and even a little less CPU usage.

The next LTS is due for release on April 21, 2016. We’re getting closer to the distro’s first official LTS!


Nice job on the Software Boutique. I even found a package (Aptik) to install :slight_smile:

Sadly, some applications can't be integrated as they use something completely different for the menu bar. :frowning:

In the welcome screen, in Russian the words “Welcome” is missing the soft sign.

В окне приветствия по-русски в словах “Добро пожаловать” не хватает мягкого знака.

Thanks for pointing that out @Serg_Red . I’ll correct that. :slight_smile:

Please, how can I install MATE 16.04 on my Raspberry Pi 2? i have not too much knowledges about code.
Could someone give me a step-by-step guide for a dummy? :slightly_smiling:
thanks in advanced.

Only 15.10.3 builds exist at the moment. 16.04 builds will be released for the Raspberry Pi 2 in April 2016.

Funnily enough, I was watching this video yesterday, and ExplainingComputers nicely explains how to set it up under Windows.

then… wait time.
thanks you very much.

I use Unity from 13:04 and I really like the way you use the left bar with the App and documents faring much better, especially on screens 16:09, but the Dash never liked me,
I think Unity 8 goes astray, and now with Mate 16:04 and Mutiny gives me the opportunity to change, I loved my old Gnome2 but the left bar is used very well.

When testing Mate 16:04 I’ve noticed that clicking with left mouse button out three options (open, mount and unmount) instead of opening the partition, I think those options should change the right button.

thanks to the developers for listening to the community and offer this option Mutiny …


Netflix Warning

Small warning to those wanting to install Chrome from Google, only 64bit OS is now supported by Chrome Browser.

I use Chrome browser with Netflix as only Chrome direct from Google or Firefox direct from Mozilla will work with Netflix. Firefox inside this distribution will not work with Netflix.

Is there a way to point out on the download screen that Chrome Browser only works with the 64bit version of any OS now? Will save someone time of installing 32bit for some older hardware when the 64bit will work too and be easier than having to install the ubuntu-mate-16-04-beta-1 64bit later.
