Budgie-Remix (soon to become Ubuntu Budgie) developer David Mohammed has informed about the availability of the project’s first-ever newsletter for the community.
The newsletter is called Budgie-Remix Roundup, and the first installation is now live on the project’s website, informing users about the latest innovations implemented in the operating system, whose main design goal is to give users an officially recognized Ubuntu flavor built around the Budgie desktop from the Solus Project.
From the newsletter, it looks like there are a few interesting things that are coming to Budgie-Remix very soon, targeting both the stable Budgie-Remix 16.04 and the now-in-development Budgie-Remix 16.10 release. Among them is a new boot splash screen for Plymouth.
Furthermore, a Welcome to Budgie-Remix/Ubuntu Budgie app will be available soon for the upcoming Budgie-Remix 16.04.1 release, as well as in the final Budgie-Remix 16.10 release, which the team hopes to rename to Ubuntu Budgie if the distribution is accepted as an official flavor, which Mark Shuttleworth himself said he would endorse.
