Cinnamon to be included in the official fedora repo

Postby bimsebasse on Sat Jul 21, 2012 5:23 pm

Cinnamon has been accepted for inclusion in the official fedora repo which means fedora users soon no longer will have to add third-party repos to install it (now, actually, it's already available) - great pad on the back to Cinnamon developers generally and leigh123linux (Leigh Scott) specifically.

It\s also well ahead of the version in Mint's stable repo - got all the new applets and expo features.

To get cinnamon to pass the review (they wanted it to build on F18) I had to use git master for both muffin and cinnamon.
I was unable to test on F18 so used F17 instead, it proved to be more stable than the stable branch so I decided to push it to stable for F17.
