Deepin 20.4 comes with enhanced system installation and user experiences and offers many practical features to meet user needs in more scenarios.

 

System Evolution

———————————

 

Smarter System Monitor

Monitor resource usage and notify users automatically

Setting thresholds of CPU and memory usage are supported in the new version. When the resource usage reaches the threshold, you will get a notification, then you can take some tough measures, such as killing unnecessary processes, etc., to keep the device running normally and healthily.

 

System Monitor will be improved continuously to be a better system monitoring and managing tool.

 

Optimized File Manager

Show entries of third-party apps on the Computer page

Many third-party applications can also manage files, but the files may be scattered everywhere in your system. To make file management more focused and convenient, these applications are gathered onto the Computer page, which can be opened by double-clicking or right-clicking on it.

 

Simplified System Installation 

 Create partitions more easily

The system installer is optimized to support automatically mounting the swap partition, and detecting the existing EFI partition in dual systems (no need to create an EFI partition again). The simplified installation process makes you free from the tedious operations in manual installation and enhances the overall experience.
