The H covers
the first stable release of Cinnamon. "Version 1.2 of Cinnamon, the
Linux Mint project's fork of the GNOME Shell, has been released and the APIs and
desktop interface have been declared fully stable by Mint Founder Clement
Lefebvre. Created last
year to streamline the Mint developers' changes to the GNOME 3
environment, the Cinnamon fork brings familiar GNOME 2 design elements to
the GNOME 3 shell. Among the enhancements in the stable version is easier
customisation through a "Cinnamon Settings" tool which includes, for
example, the ability to set the date format for the calendar applet and
change panel launchers' icons.
" The Cinnamon download page
has instructions for installing Cinnamon on other distributions, including
Ubuntu 11.10, Fedora 16, openSUSE 12.1, Arch Linux and Gentoo.
