According to the project’s developers, a lot of things have happened since the release of budgie-remix 16.04.1 back on July, which brought full-disk encryption and support for installing Snap packages, along with all the software updates and security fixes from the Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system.
One of the most important components updated recently is the in-house built Budgie Welcome App, which has just received more user-friendly panel resets and the ability to switch your desktop from the clean and simple Arc GTK theme to a gorgeous material design style that includes both a system theme and an icon set.
The highly anticipated Ubuntu Budgie Remix 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating system is in the works now, but it looks like an ISO image is yet to be seeded to public beta testers. It will include all the latest GTK+ 3.20 and GNOME Stack 3.20 packages that landed upstream in the Ubuntu 16.10 repos, along with a new LightDM display manager.
