Ubuntu Cinnamon 22.04 Now Available

May 03, 2022

Ubuntu Cinnamon 22.04 has been released with all the additions from upstream as well as other features and improvements.

For those who prefer the Cinnamon desktop, but would rather have all the fancy Ubuntu underpinnings (instead of going with Linux Mint), developer Joshua Peisach has announced the release of his Ubuntu remix, Ubuntu Cinnamon. This new version is based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and includes the Cinnamon 5.2 desktop. Cinnamon 5.2 adds improvements to the Menu applet (such as better keyboard navigation when using left to right languages). The Calendar applet now supports GNOME’s Evolution Data Server for contacts, tasks, and calendar information.

Beyond what Cinnamon 5.2 brings to the table, Ubuntu Cinnamon 22.04 added fixes for background and screen tearing issues, Wayland set as the default when using non-NVIDIA graphics cards, updates for Active Directory (including full Group Policy support, privilege escalation, and remote script execution), and plenty of performance and reliability improvements.

Of this release, Peisach said, “This release has been two years in the making, and I am so grateful for everyone who helped – through quality assurance/testing, bug squashing, general development, and those across the different Ubuntu teams.”

For more information about the release, check out Peisach’s blog post and download a copy of the ISO to install on either bare metal or as a virtual image.
