Here are a few advantages of applets vs extensions in Cinnamon:
- Easier to write (most of the things are already done for you)
- Consistent style across applets in the panel when it comes to margin, fonts etc..
- The user decides where the applet goes, not the developer of the applet
- Applets are confronted to the Cinnamon Applet API, which doesn't change much from release to release (and so applets don't depend on a particular version of cinnamon)
- Common right-click behavior across applets which the applet can extend
Thanks for your latest infos.
1. Where is Clem writing?
2. What do you mean by this sentence: Don't plan on seeing others have Cinnamon 1.1.4 soon after it's released.. Should I understand that the 1.1.4. version of Cinnamon will be final? Or that it will not be easily used soon by other distros? If so, for what reason?
3. Mufin do not compile on Ubuntu 12.04 : for the moment, forever? It can be used as a binary? It cannot be used?

'"1.2" after "1.1.3" in the cinnamon version line of metadata.js of /email@example.com
line 5 will look like this:
"cinnamon-version": [ "1.1.3","1.2" ],
EDIT: Dont forget to turn it on in cinnamon settings -> extensions
EDIT2: I only had to modify the menu section of my personal theme to get it to work.

You have to restart cinnamon after you change the theme.
Also it allows you to change the which windows actions buttons are allow to show.
If youi are on Linux Mint it won't work !00% even if you force install it.

Most of the time the dock doesn't detect that mouse is still focusing on it and hides.
This makes it hard to use with auto hide.
If you move fast enough and are lucky you might get something to launch.
