For those using the Illumos-based OpenIndiana operating system originally derived from OpenSolaris, the MATE 1.14 desktop environment is now available.

The MATE 1.14 Software Compilation is now available to users of OpenIndiana with three of the OI developers having been working on porting and packaging all of the desktop components for this non-Linux platform. They've accomplished their mission, including bringing PulseAudio 8.0.

Those interested in pairing OpenIndiana with MATE 1.14 can learn more via the OpenIndiana Wiki.
