The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to
announce the immediate availability of the new TDE R14.0.1 release. The
Trinity Desktop Environment is a complete software desktop environment
designed for Unix-like operating systems, intended for computer users
preferring a traditional desktop model, and is free/libre software.

R14.0.1 is the first maintenance release of the R14.0 series, and is the
result of several months of ongoing effort by the TDE development team.
Maintenance releases are intended to promptly bring bug fixes to users,
while preserving overall stability through the avoidance of both new
features and major codebase re-factoring.

OpenSUSE, and PCLinuxOS are being built by their respective maintainers
and will be made available at a later date.

Live CDs with TDE R14.0.1 preinstalled are available on the LiveCDs page.

User Feedback

Feedback from our users is an integral part of a large, user-experience
oriented project such TDE.  Whether you want to report a bug, suggest an
improvement, or simply let us know your opinion of TDE, please feel free
to contact us.  Two good places to start communication are the project's
mailing lists at and its
bug tracker at .

Developers Wanted

The TDE development team is small but friendly. If you wish to participate
in the TDE development process, please visit the Get involved page for
additional information.

Contribute to the TDE Project

Creating TDE requires significant computing resources and bandwidth.
Please consider helping to keep us online with a donation on our donations
page at .

In particular, the TDE project is desperately in need of additional disk
space for its build farm to store the package archives of Debian Stretch,
and also the built binaries for the additional architectures that TDE is
being built for.  ARM and OpenPOWER may be the architectures of the
future, and we would like to ensure that TDE is available and functioning
on those platforms.

Thank you for your ongoing support.  Without your financial assistance,
TDE would not be possible!
