What's new in Cinnamon 1.6.7 Version:
  • Resize existing icons in window list applet when panel icon scaling mode is changed
  • Fixed icon pixelation in Alt-tab (for most toolkits including pyGTK)
  • Fixed menu application buttons being cropped
  • Fixed advanced options box in cinnamon-settings->backgrounds not being shown properly in Mint 14 (GTK3.6?)
  • Updated translations
  • Fixed localization of application items in main menu
  • Nemo 1.1.2: Cleaned up code from move-to/copy-to entries so that views can be finalized (ensures all listener signals get disconnected, stops random crashes in the preferences screen).

Note: Cinnamon has conflicts with Gnome in 13.04 Raring, So if you have latest Gnome 3.8 then don't install cinnamon. It will break your Ubuntu. (Not tested with Gnome 3.6)
