budgie-desktop 10.2.7 is now available for xenial users


The latest version of budgie-desktop 10.2.7 is now available for xenial

Please feedback your thoughts - good and not so good!!

We have added a patch which we believe fixes the panel crash/ whole session
crash when installing new apps / updating from update-manager.

The side effect is that installing new apps, the app menu does not appear
until you next login.

To install 10.2.7 for testing:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:budgie-remix/proposed
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade

Once testing is complete and 10.2.7 is in the main PPA you can safely
remove the proposed repo:

sudo ppa-purge ppa:budgie-remix/proposed

This is a massive update despite its minor version increment:

1. OSD for volume changes
2. new indicators - keyboard - you should be able to switch between
different keyboards
3. new indicators - raven - you should see a new indicator that toggles
opening/closing of raven
4. new indicators - the shutdown icon gives you various options
5. new indicators - all indicators are left click now for consistency
6. new indicators - battery icons - more options
7. new indicators - notification icon click opens the notifications tab in
8. new indicators - volume icon should show a slider to control the volume
9. raven - you should see a unredirect option - those that are gamers would
appreciate this.
10. raven - subtle restyling, snappy opening/closing
11. icon task list - lots of styling changes
12. + dozens and dozens of other changes - you can look at the commits
