Newly Released MATE Desktop 1.6 Receives Improved GTK3 Support

A new version of the MATE desktop is now available for download.


MATE Desktop 1.16 focuses on “improving GTK3+ compatibility, migrating components to newer libraries, fixing bugs and code hygiene, together with an improved GTK3+ support across the MATE desktop.

The MATE Terminal and the Engrampa file archive utility (among other applications) are built solely against GTK3+.

The Caja file manager, Eye of MATE image viewer, and Atril document tool have also benefited from this new set of bug fixes.
