Do not install, use or evaluate it in a virtual machine
Since Compiz is used as the window manager in Deepin 2014 and its performance is poor in a virtual machine, Deepin 2014 is strongly recommended to be installed directly in the real machine, so that the gorgeous effect of which can be truly experienced.
To completely solve this problem, we have planned to develop a new window manager to replace Compiz in the future releases.
Linux Deepin Project has been officially renamed as “Deepin Project”.
Deepin is a Linux distribution that aims to provide an elegant, user-friendly, safe and stable operating system for global users. Based on HTML5 technologies, Deepin team has developed a series of new special software, such as Deepin Desktop Environment, Deepin Music Player, DPlayer, Deepin Software Center etc.
In recent years, Deepin developed rapidly and has got support of users from more than 40 countries or regions in the world. The operating system has been downloaded tens of millions of times and ranks first on DistroWatch among Chinese Linux operating system distributions.
Compared with Deepin 2013 release, Deepin 2014 release has the following updates and changes:
Thanks to efforts of the translators from various countries in Deepin Community, Deepin 2014 officially offers 10 languages. And all the languages are integrated in an ISO mirror to facilitate the users’ installation.
At present Deepin International Project is being translated into 67 languages( including the same languages in different language families). You are welcome to join in this project. Let Deepin System support more languages.
Deepin Desktop Environment 2.0
Deepin 2014 brings a brand-new Deepin Desktop Environment 2.0, with a specially designed Deepin theme, which makes the overall style and appearance of Deepin 2014 unified, neat and tidy.
Compared with the previous distribution, Deepin Desktop Environment 2.0 newly adds convenience features, such as user guide, starter Chinese phonetic search, intuitive hot zone settings, which makes users at home when they initially use Deepin system.
Meanwhile, we have made a comprehensive optimization to Deepin Desktop Environment 2.0 and the internal of the system with a boot memory of only 500M, and the internal prompt mechanism has been improved, which makes Deepin 2014 more lightweight and sensitive.
Deepin Control Center
The system settings in Deepin Desktop Environment 2.0 have been comprehensively
upgraded into Deepin Control Center. And in appearance the panel pops up on the right of the screen, which makes the Deepin Control Center more efficiently and beautifully used.
At the same time when some functions of important modules, such as display, network and personalization are comprehensively improved, more functions that can be set are newly added, like system theme management and program start menu management.
The brand-new pieces of software such as Deepin Movie, Deepin Translator, Deepin Boot Maker and so on are added in Deepin 2014. And the commonly used pieces of software like Sogou input method and Google browser are updated, to facilitate the use for daily entertainment and work.
Based on Deepin 2013 depot, we added a lot of third-party software, which could be installed directly by opening Deepin Software Center. Meanwhile, the system supports uninstalling programs directly by the right key in the starter. Now, no tedious Root certification is needed whether in installing or uninstalling software under Deepin. And there is strict control in the whole operation, and thus security problems won’t happen.
In addition, Deepin Project possesses more than 70 mirror sources in the world. The function of Deepin Software Center detecting the best source has returned. Physical location judgement is added in this function. This function can help you quickly choose the best software source for your quickly updating system and installing software.
Deepin 2014 is equipped with award-winning works in Deepin 2014 Wallpaper Contest and Deepin Internationalization Project results by default, which makes Deepin 2014 have more beautiful wallpaper and have become the first comprehensive international version of Deepin Project.
The results of Deepin Project have also been constantly ported to other distributions by community developers. At present Deepin Desktop Environment has been successfully ported to the distributions like Arch, Manjaro, openSUSE and Anthon.
