NEWS in version 121130 of MeX
My first version of MeX 12:10 is from 121102. In the current version minor errors in version 121102 are corrected. In addition, there are now no longer any known serious bugs in Ubuntu 12.10 (and thus not in today’s version of MeX). Moreover, I added a ninth Desktop environment. Namely Cairo-Dock 3.1 with Gnome. Kernel 3.5.0-18 exton is replaced with kernel 3.5.0-19-exton.

Used KERNEL
My special kernel 3.5.0-19-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s kernel 3.6.7. The orignal Ubuntu kernel is 3.5.0-17-generic.
