I read this top to bottom. Exciting as hell. Even the Gnome news🙂.
@davidjharder ----"For a demonstration of pipewire’s out-of-the-box capabilities, see this forum post about noise reduction for microphone inputs." [there was no post linked].
MATE to XFCE explained:
"We are still working on a seamless transition path for existing users of the MATE desktop. In broad terms, we will provide a way for users to transition their MATE installations to Budgie or XFCE. MATE will continue to be supported for existing users until we are confident in our transition plan"
Lastly congratulations to @EbonJaeger : "The Budgie Trash Applet, developed by Buddies of Budgie and Solus team member Evan Maddock, is now part of the default applets available on all Budgie installations. With this applet, users can efficiently empty their trashcan and browse contents for possible restoration."
I always selected and installed this from ADD widget menu...now it's default! Nice. Long time user of your applet.
