Budgie Desktop 10.2.5 Now Available With Solus 1.1 OS

Josh Strobl from the Solus Project had the great pleasure of announcing the release and immediate availability of Budgie Desktop 10.2.5.

We are happy to announce the release of Budgie 10.2.5. This release builds upon our vision of a desktop environment focused on simplicity and elegance, by introducing further refinements to the user experience while expanding options for enabling a more tailored desktop experience.

Budgie Desktop 10.2.5 is the fifth maintenance release in the 10.2 series of the free open-source graphical desktop environment used on the flawless Solus Linux operating system.

This version of Budgie promises to be tailored to your experience.

Budgie is just as much about enabling you to tailor your experience than it is providing a sane out-of-the-box experience. We have expanded on desktop experience options by providing you the ability to:

  • Enable desktop icons
  • Select different cursor themes
  • Select different fonts for things like Window Titles, Interface, etc.

Via Josh Strobl’s announcement:

All the changes above accompany an abundance of other improvements, some transparent to the user but equally important to the experience.

  • Budgie is now stateless.
  • Built-in theme has been ported to GTK 3.20.
    • As a result, we select the correct theme based on the GTK version.
  • Fix window accountancy errors in budgie-wm, fixes several Steam titles
  • LightDM lock screen functionality has been restored.
  • Resolved instances where budgie-panel wouldn’t render across the entire display, as well as fixing rare instances where budgie-panel would have a titlebar.

New Bluetooth applet:

Solus OS Linux Integrates a Budgie Desktop

Solus OS developers has announced that the new Solus 2.0 will feature a budgie desktop that will be fully customizable.

The next version of the Budgie Desktop comes with many new features including support for enabling and disabling desktop icons, support for tweaking fonts for “Window Titles,” “Documents,” “Interface,” as well as “Monospace,” Bluetooth support, and the ability to use multiple audio input and output devices on your computer.

With Apple going wireless with their headphone jacks, it’ll be nice to see if computers follow suit and go entirely wireless with headphones and audio devices sooner or later.

Among an updated budgie desktop, developers have also added updated applications such as Mozilla Firefox 45.0.1, Mozilla Thunderbird 38.7.0, Nmap 7.10, Transmission 2.92, YouTube-dl 2016.03.14, Git 2.7.3, and Atom 1.6.0.

Be sure to update your Solus OS system now and don’t miss out on all of the new features and updates.
