Ubuntu MATE 15.10 Beta 1 Released

The Ubuntu MATE developers announced release of Ubuntu MATE 15.10 Beta 1, with code name 'Wily Werewolf'. Ubuntu MATE 15.10 Beta 1, is a pre-release for Ubuntu MATE 15.10 final, which is expected to be release on 22nd of coming october. 

Ubuntu MATE team has made several changes since release of earlier pre-release, Alpha 2. According to release announcement, these changes includes
  • Almost completely updated to MATE 1.10
  • Ubuntu MATE welcome screen is updated
  • MATE Tweak 3.5.2 is included
  • Added Deja Dup integration to Caja filemanager. 
  • Fixed unlocking issue for locking screen.
From release announcement:
That's quite a list. As I've said before I conduct all MATE packaging work in Debian, as part of the MATE Packaging team for Debian. What with summer vacations, civic duty and DebConf 2015 we didn't quite get all of MATE 1.10 uploaded in time for Beta 1. The packages above should receive their 1.10 updates in the coming days.

Until all the MATE components are updated to 1.10, things could be a bit bumpy. Ubuntu MATE 15.10 Beta 1 might be the most unstable version of Ubuntu MATE we've every released. But everything should be hunky-dory for the final beta next month.
