We’re happy to report the landing of MATE 1.16.0 in the Solus unstable repository. This MATE release improved GTK3 support and improvements to MATE applications such as:

  • caja now will always show the right-arrow button, now uses GtkAboutDialog.
  • engrampa now having p7zip-rar support
  • mate-polkit dropping GTK2 code.
  • mate-terminal dropping GTK2 code and moving to using GtkAboutDialog.

Hats off to the MATE community for the fantastic release. For their full release announcement, click here.
