Version 1.14 of MATE-Desktop was tagged in Git yesterday along with other MATE components.

The mate-desktop 1.14 release has just some minor fixes and translation updates.

The MATE Session Manager 1.14 release drops the MateConf migration script, fixes some deprecations in GTK3, and has other fixes and cleanups.

The Pluma text editor for the 1.14 milestone has more GTK3 changes, support for middle-click tab closing, a new configuration dialog for the spell check plugin, and more.

The MATE Control Center for its touchpad settings now supports edge and two-finger scrolling independently.

MATE Applets 1.14 adds the netspeed applet from the now discontinued mate-netspeed project.

If you want to dig through the other MATE Git repositories while waiting for the official MATE 1.14 release to be formally announced, you can do so via GitHub. As more MATE 1.14 details become available, you can expect to read about it on Phoronix.
