As you may know, Cinnamon is among the most popular desktop environments available on Linux systems and very used on Linux Mint, among others.
Linux Mint’s Clement Lefebvre has recently announced that Cinnamon 2.8 will bring better box pointers and information about the laptop’s model and manufacturer.
The official announcement:
“One thing immediately caught my attention because both the Xfce and the Cinnamon teams had worked on improving power management… and that was the presence of manufacturer data in the power settings and applet,” says Clement Lefebvre. “That’s something we missed in Cinnamon 2.6, I guess we didn’t really think about it, and so that’s something we just added for the upcoming Cinnamon 2.8.”
