Cinnamon fork of GNOME Shell gets stable release (The H)

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.
