The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to
announce the immediate availability of the new TDE R14.0.3 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.

R14.0.3 is the third maintenance release of the R14.0 series, and is built
on and improves the previous R14.0.2 version. 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

support can be achieved. Additional developers or contributors willing to
help porting the remaining features and applications are always welcome.

Installation instructions and binary packages are immediately available
for Debian and Ubuntu. Packages for RedHat/CentOs, Fedora, Mageia,

and will be made available at a later date.

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 has extended full support to the OpenPOWER
platform, using real OpenPOWER hardware, as this may be the only open
workstation/server class computing platform available in the future.
Please help us to keep improving this port with your donations.

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