Since Compiz has poor performance in virtual machines (Deepin 2014.1 uses Compiz as the window manager), we strongly recommend that you directly install Deepin 2014.1 on real machines, so as to experience the gorgeous effects of Deepin 2014.1.
We plan to use the window manager developed by ourselves in our future versions to solve this problem thoroughly.
Deepin is a Linux distribution that aims to provide an elegant, user-friendly and stable operating system for users all around the world. Based on HTML5 technology, Deepin Team have developed a series of featured software, such as the brand-new Deepin Desktop Environment, Music Player, Video Player and Software Center.
Deepin has developed rapidly in recent years. It has got the support of users from more than 40 countries and regions in the world. Deepin operating system has been downloaded tens of millions of times and ranks first on DistroWatch among Chinese Linux operating system distributions.
Fast and Stable
In this version, we focus on enhancing the system stability. Meanwhile, the system performance has been optimized thoroughly and the major improvements are as follows:
In this version, in order to ensure the stable running of Dock on all computers, the main improvements are as follows:
- Added the anti-frozen function of Dock in background;
- Fixed the system frozen bugs caused by Dock.
For desktop, we have resolved the problems of right-click menu and multiple screen display:
- The response speed of right-click menu has been improved significantly and its memory has been reduced 90% than before;
- Multi-display function has solved the problems of novice guide malposition and wrong display of wallpapers.
The control center is mainly to strengthen the display and the stability of network module function, and we have also solved the splash screen problem on some computers.
- The soft control function of screen brightness has been added in display module, which has solved the problem that the brightness can’t be adjusted on most computers;
- The wireless hardware switch prompt has been added in network module, and a series of bugs, such as that some wired network can’t show the real hardware have been fixed.
We have improved or ungraded the software built in our system:
- The problem that the downloading speed becomes slower and slower when users download installing software in Deepin Store has been solved.
- Some functions like subtitle display have been strengthened and some new functions, like supporting folders’ recursively being read, are newly added in Deepin Movie.
- Sogou input method and WPS have been upgraded to their latest versions.
More Perfect Internationalization
Thanks to the steady promotion of Deepin Internationalization Project, the translation of the 10 kinds of languages officially offered by Deepin 2014.1 is more accurate. The community supports more than 60 kinds of languages, the translation progress of which has also been significantly improved. Deepin 2014.1 already contains all the achievements achieved after Deepin Internationalization Project was promoted, so as to facilitate the users to use it directly.
Meanwhile, with the help of contributors from different countries, we have conducted a more comprehensive test to some internationalization functions, such as the time zone, calendar and keyboard layout, which solves the problem of mistakes in some time zones and calendar.
More Intimate Functions
The two new modes——”Efficient Mode” and “Classical Mode” are added in the Dock program, which is a great progress of Deepin Desktop Environment continuing to improve the user experience. The three modes can be switched seamlessly to meet the individualized needs of different users to Dock.
On reducing interferences, the functions of screen hotspots automatically being disabled and intelligent power management are added to Deepin Desktop Environment, which can avoid problems such as the users being interfered by screen hotspots when they operate in full screen and screen becoming automatically black when there are no operations.
On smart tips of the system, Deepin Desktop Environment is newly added some desktop tips like multi-screen display. Users can choose the mode they need in the prompt window.
In addition, Deepin Project has nearly 70 software sources in the world. Using the best source detecting function in Deepin Store can help you quickly choose the best software source so that you can quickly update the system and install the software.
