Ubuntu MATE 17.10 was released today as part of today’s Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating system, bringing six month’s worth of improvements and new features for fans of the MATE desktop environment.

For the Ubuntu MATE 17.10 release, Martin Wimpress and his team of skillfull developers managed to add lots of interesting goodies, starting with support for Snap apps integrated into the distribution and continuing with a new panel layout called Mutiny, dedicated to fans of the Unity 7 desktop.
