Although there is not yet an official announcement when I write this article, Cinnamon 3.8 is available for download. It has already landed in the repositories of some of the most popular GNU/Linux distributions, such as Condres OS Gnu/Linux. Cinnamon 3.8 is a major release of the well-known desktop environment that powers Linux Mint.

According to the timetable it should have been issued with Mint 19 "Tara". This version 3.8 introduces several improvements and some new features. Developers ported many components to Python 3, including: cinnamon-settings, cinnamon-menu-editor, cinnamon-desktop-editor, cinnamon-settings-users, melange, background slideshow, switch editor, and all utilities .

The developers have then simplified the away-message dialog, have refined the applet for the management of the audio (it is now possible to run the previous or next track with the scroll of the mouse and preserve the aspect ratio). Notifications can now be placed at the bottom of the screen, even if you have a system of multiple screens.

The Power app label is now automatically hidden if no devices are connected. The Window List preview has completely new layouts, options and styles. With Cinnamon 3.8, the GTK + frontend gksu for sudo is no longer used and users can manage the visibility of desklets from the context menu of the Show Desktop applet. Cinnamon 3.8 removes support for the JHBuild tool and the cinnamon-extension-tool component, but the option "Switch off immediately" has been added. Countless bugs have been corrected.
