zerozero,

Oh no, I did see that. I misunderstood what you said to mean that 1.6 was pushed to the regular repos.

Thanks very much for your help.

The policy is a little bit different between Mint and Cinnamon. Here on this blog we’re developing something for the Linux community as a whole, it can be bleeding edge and brand new and it can come out very often as soon as it’s ready.

Linux Mint is different. At Mint we like to make sure things work well and have had time to mature. We’re much more conservative over there than we are here. So for instance, Cinnamon 1.6.0 is incomplete in regards to translations and it’s the very first 1.6 release (i.e. it didn’t get any community feedback). You can see already how 1.6.1 benefits from that feedback and addresses problems. At some stage Cinnamon 1.6.x will be as mature as Cinnamon 1.4 and as complete when it comes to translations, that’s when we’ll feel it’s ready to replace 1.4 in the main Mint 13 repositories.

Because of the way we work also (we don’t multitrack) we focus on one thing at a time. So the plan for Cinnamon 1.6 is first to get into Mint 14 and then to be backported to Mint 13 and LMDE. In the meantime it’s there as an opt-in via the Romeo section of the repositories.

Considering the problems I'm having right now (http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 8&t=113884), that makes a lot of sense. What's the most painless way to revert to 1.4? I think I saw a post explaining that, but can't remember which one >_<

Or I could try to open a new issue on github, I wonder how many people are affected by this very problem though.
