New ISO, MATE desktop

2 new MATE ISOs are available, a standard issue and a desktop edition, both with a nice, dark GTK theme. The desktop one is beefier and comes with a lot more packages, most important of which are:
Code: [Select]
mpv
gimp
mcomix
inkscape
veracrypt
handbrake
firefox
libreoffice-fresh
sylpheed
geany
wine
lollypop
audacity
brasero
openshot
syncthing-gtk
tigervnc

These are marked as community ISOs, meaning they're not officially supported like base and lxqt.

You mean a base  and a mate or is the one a MATE instraller and the other has the full live desktop?

I havent downloaded and had a look yet but i would say its more of a minimal install the standard iso. Less packages than the full blown experience of Mate with shiteloads of packages.

Very cool, i dont mind mate as a desktop. I might have to convert once i get a bit more ram.

I downloaded the full iso and gave a try live. It is certainly a well thought out and very professional looking desktop experience. Definitely a thumbs up from me on your implementation @nous. Well done....I would recommend this for all the fans of Mate. I am still a Plasma fan however.....just because. ;)

Best regards.
We should try to be kind to everyone.....we are all fighting some sort of battle.

Well done nous.  It's snappy as a desktop - looks really great.  And the power button!  It let's you log out, reboot etc instead of just shutting the machine down.  This I like alot!

Nice work virtually how I've  been using mate for a year.
The mate menu has now been dropped to AUR which is a shame it would be nice if you could add it to the Artix repro, as it really finishes the mate  desktop.

How come the Brisk menu isn't that popular with Mate users? Is there some inherent bugs that come with it?
