Cinnamon 3.4 Packages for Current

I have just pushed latest Cinnamon 3.4.0 changes in master branch of my CSB project and also pushed the binary packages into the usual testing playground (Thanks to Tadgy).  At this moment, i just tested against -current (it was built on top of latest May 5 update with the latest toolchain) and i still haven't decided whether i will backport this into 14.2 or not.

I made some changes in some script to have them built as noarch since most of them are translations, icons, images, and theme files. This will reduce the build time when building for two architectures. The biggest change in Cinnamon 3.4 packages is the new mozjs which is based on Firefox 38.8.0. In future release, upstream is planning to push forward and rebase it from newer Firefox source such as 45 and 51. For now, Cinnamon added support for mozjs 38.8.0 and we will use that version.


Looking at previous releases, it will take some time to stabilize Cinnamon and there will be several minor releases following changes upstream. This trend will continue until next Linux Mint gets released since Cinnamon 3.4 is getting prepared for it.

If you are following AlienBOB's Slackware Live project, then you can use the make_slackware_live.sh script to generate a new ISO for testing before using it on your machine.

Enjoy Cinnamon 3.4 on Slackware Current
