Fans of Cinnamon should be pleased that the new version (version 2.4) of their favorite Linux desktop will be available to the public by the end of October, 2014.
After a month of ‘maturation,’ Cinnamon 2.4 will be integrated into the upcoming Linux Mint 17.1 “Rebecca” in late November.
Cinnamon developers say two types of background collections will be supported:
* Cinnamon background collections, which are XML collections provided by the operating system or installed via the Software Manager
* Filesystem directories, which users can add or remove via the interface
The goal with the background slideshows is to keep the interface simple and let users pick a single background from a collection or activate a slideshow for that collection.
The current version of Cinnamon is 2.2.16 has been available since August 2014.
