I am a member of the Trinity Desktop Environment development team. The
development team members and I were pleased to learn that the LiMux
project has been using Trinity Desktop 3.5.12 since August 2011.

Members of the Trinity development team invite you and the LiMux
developers to join our efforts. By joining efforts we can bring
forward Trinity for our general user base, resolve LiMux specific
issues, respond to problems more quickly, as well as offer debugging
and packaging help.

The Trinity development team is preparing a software release update
(SRU) of 3.5.13 and actively developing our next release R14. The
upcoming R14 release includes the following:

* XDG compliance, with TDE now a recognized environment.

* An improved TQt interface layer that allows selective adaptation of
Qt4 programming widgets into the original Qt3 environment.

* A Qt4 integration style allowing seamless integration with
applications like VLC.

* Support for Secure Attention Key, which ensures better login
protection than other desktop environments.

* Native dialog box support for LibreOffice 3.6 (included upstream).

* Foundational preparations for an operating system independent
support of hardware without HAL, which will allow Trinity to continue
to operate well on newer GNU/Linux distributions.

Both R14 and 3.5.13 (SRU) provide current support for current upstream

*  GCC 4.7.1
*  glibc 2.16
*  glib2 2.31
*  libpng 1.5
*  cups 1.6
*  ffmpeg 0.11

* Approximately 350 bugs and enhancement requests have been resolved
since the release of 3.5.13.

Our current project goals include improved enterprise support such as
LDAP and Kerberos integration, KMail HTML support, and full hardware
support without HAL.

Please contact me or any member of the Trinity development team.
