Can you smell :nose: that? That’s the smell of fresh paint :paintbrush: with just a hint of cucumber :cucumber:

Ubuntu MATE 21.04 is here and it has a new look thanks to the collaboration with the Yaru team. This release marks the start of a new visual direction for Ubuntu MATE, while retaining the features you’ve come to love :green_heart: Read on to learn :mortar_board: what we’ve been working on over the last 6 months and get some insight to what we’ll be working on next.


Hi every one,
Seams to be more faster. I try it on the live cd but there's a problem with ubiquity accessibility I'm blind and orca doesn't speak in the installation.

Also ran it from a live usb installer and the bug where orca doesn't start up from login screen still persists.

Happens with 20.10 and 21.04 respectively.

Any ETA for a fix?

Thank you

Upgrade (20.10 -> 21.04) - smooth, no issues

It simply works and works and works and works... as expected :+1:

Thank you all so much!
