Super handy new post from Alex Eames of RasPi.TV.
Last week. Simon Long from Raspberry Pi released a new version of Raspbian with several new features. The most visible of these is the new-look desktop skin, named PIXEL (Pi Improved Xwindows Environment, Lightweight).
There’s a lot of user interface (UI) tweaks both functional and visual…
- new splash screen on boot
- stunning background images added
- a whole new set of icons
- larger ‘drag handles’ for resizing windows (that’s bugged me for years)
- windows now have rounded corners
- new font rendering package for better typography
