In addition to the user interface and notification system, which will continue to be improved in the future, the new development team has committed itself to a new major goal.

Buggy means to be distilled

The desktop environment itself and its upstream will in the future be based on the following packages:

  • Budgie Desktop 10.6+
  • Budgie Desktop View 1.2+
  • Budgie Control Center 1.0.0+

on this basis, “New” Budgie follows a minimalist approach of providing only a set of extremely closely linked components and leaving the rest of the platform or ecosystem to the distributor or end user.

Solus developer bears the main responsibility

Joshua Stroble, the developer previously responsible for Solus along with Icky Doherty and others, has primary responsibility for the Budgie development team’s friends. More information is provided by project page On the GitHub Developer Platform.

Budgie’s friends consider the Budgie Desktop to be a platform, not a product. Budgie Desktop distributors and users should not feel that their choice of theme, application or default style conflicts with the goals of the project.
