Introduction

The Trinity Desktop Environment is a complete software desktop environment designed for Unix-like operating systems, intended for computer users preferring a traditional desktop model, and is free/libre software.

R14.0.2 is the second maintenance release of the R14.0 series, and is built on and improves the previous R14.0.1 version.
Maintenance releases are intended to promptly bring bug fixes to users, while preserving overall stability through the avoidance of both new features and major codebase re-factoring.

FreeBSD Support

Support for FreeBSD is improving - the port of a first group of applications is now completed! However, there are still some issues that need to be addressed before full FreeBSD support can be achieved. Additional developers or contributors willing to help porting the remaining features and applications are always welcome.
