Linux Deepin, one of the most active community distributions from China, released its version 11.12.1 on the leap day as an upgrade from its New Year release. Deepin GNOME Shell now supports 3D effects and a so-called output device chooser for sound. Deepin Software Center is upgraded to version 2.1.2 where user experience has been greatly improved with a lot of bug fixes and even added support of Hebrew. The new Deepin-Scrot 2.0 now allows rudimentary image processing like text input on the screenshots taken. Documentation is also upgraded where FAQs are added and English edition is included. Other changes include Linux kernel 3.0.0-16, Firefox 10.0.2, Thunderbird 10.0.2, and LibreOffice 3.4. Check the complete release notes (in Chinese) for more, with hint on online upgrade and even a link to video presentations. Linux Deepin is based on Ubuntu but it has different software center, we can say it's own software center.
They designed gnome shell in a nice way. I tested this version, it is really cool distro stable and nice look. Linux Deepin 11.12 features a brand new, carefully tweaked GNOME Shell. This is a remarkable evolution delivering a great experience within a new generation desktop platform.
