2016.11.07: Trinity Desktop Environment R14.0.4 Released!

The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new TDE R14.0.4 release. The Trinity Desktop Environment is a complete software desktop environment designed for Unix-like operating systems, intended for computer users preferring a traditional desktop model, and is free/libre software.

R14.0.4 is the fourth maintenance release of the R14.0 series, and is built on and improves the previous R14.0.3 version. Maintenance releases are intended to promptly bring bug fixes to users, while preserving overall stability through the avoidance of both new features and major codebase re-factoring.

FreeBSD Support
Support for FreeBSD is still partial and some new issues have arisen with the latest versions of FreeBSD. The TDE team will try their best to improve support for FreeBSD but progress will probably be slow. Additional developers or contributors willing to help porting the remaining features and applications are always welcome.

Getting TDE
Installation instructions and binary packages are immediately available for Debian and Ubuntu. Packages for RedHat/CentOs, Fedora, Mageia, OpenSUSE, and PCLinuxOS are being built by their respective maintainers and will be made available at a later date.

Live CDs with TDE R14.0.4 preinstalled are available on the LiveCDs page.
