Right now, MATE is preparing for a major release of MATE 1.8 which will happen very soon (estimated Q1 2014).
To ensure best experience for every Slackware users, i'm calling for testers to test MATE 1.7 in MSB github repository which is very close to MATE 1.8. The only package that isn't updated for MATE 1.7 is mate-bluetooth, so you can remove that from mate-build-extra.sh before start compiling it or it will stop your process.
Please see the documentations before sending bug reports. Some known issues has been documented along with the fixes (if any).
We welcome any bug report, suggestion, patches, and feedback on this project. You are welcome to send us email at firstname.lastname@example.org or use github's issue tracker or ask us directly on IRC (#msb / freenode).
When reporting, please give an information whether you perform a new installation of MATE or upgrade from previous version (1.6).
I've been using Mate-1.7 from MSB on my desktop intensively for a week now, so far, so good. Transition was very smooth (apart from mate-bluetooth stopping build process).
I can only say, that bug regarding black spaces in system tray, when few qt applications are launched, is still present. But that is not an issue of MSB (as it is known bug for mate developers). Other than that, all is great!
Thank you for your hard work!
