It’s time for another monthly updates post! Read ahead to find out what new features and fixes came as updates to elementary OS during the month of May.

Bluetooth Indicator

Devices now have status badges for quickly glancing their state

Applications Menu

We’ve also made it so actions can be found using their English name, even when your language is something other than English. We hope this helps with discovery for bi-lingual users!

We’ve also addressed an issue where sometimes opening the Applications menu would freeze the whole panel and we’ve improved keyboard navigation so that you can switch to the next page of icons no matter what row your cursor is on.

Files

Window Management

We’ve also addressed an issue where window menus could become out of sync with the window; now options like “Always on Top” always reflect the correct current state of the window.

Finally, a small productivity improvement: you can now always use the Enter key to enter a workspace when in the Multitasking View, whether or not that workspace contains a window.

And More!

In addition to the updates mentioned above, you can always rely on updated translations, stability and performance fixes, and general code cleaning. Make sure to pop open AppCenter and hit “Update All” to get the latest and greatest.


We’d like to say thanks again to everyone who’s bought an app on AppCenter, our supporters on Bountysource and Patreon, and those who’ve purchased a copy of elementary OS or merch from our store. Every contribution helps make all of this possible, and we wouldn’t be here without you! If you’d like to help improve elementary OS, don’t hesitate to Get Involved!
