Nelson Marques announced earlier today, September 10th, that the Cinnamon desktop environment has been moved to the X11:Cinnamon repository where it will be normally maintained.

Cinnamon is a clone of the GNOME 3 desktop environment and it is now available for all users of the openSUSE 12.2 Linux operating system.

"Users who are relying on GNOME:Cinnamon should migrate to X11:Cinnamon:GNOME34 as soon as possible, as GNOME:Cinnamon will be disabled in the nearby future."

"There are currently no plans of submitting Cinnamon to openSUSE:Factory since I'm not really confortable with this. If it proves to be reliable, I'll submit it," Nelson Marques said in the mailinglist announcement.

The openSUSE 12.2 (Mantis) operating system was officially released on September 5th, distributed as Live CDs and DVDs. For the full release note, check out our official announcement for openSUSE 12.2 and the screenshot tour for openSUSE 12.2.
