Trinity Desktop Environment R14.0.1 Released

My favorite desktop environment for Linux, Trinity Desktop Environment has reached R14.0.1.

Below is a part of the original announcement. Those screenshots I have posted in my earlier posts are not the default TDE look. It is how I have customized it. Visit their web site: for more screenshots. My customized version is installed on top of Ubuntu 15.04.

The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new TDE R14.0.1 release. The Trinity Desktop Environment is a complete software desktop environment designed for Unix-like operating systems, intended for computer users preferring a traditional desktop model, and is free/libre software.

R14.0.1 is the first maintenance release of the R14.0 series, and is the result of several months of ongoing effort by the TDE development team. Maintenance releases are intended to promptly bring bug fixes to users, while preserving overall stability through the avoidance of both new features and major codebase re-factoring.
