<toc-add-entry name="MATE1.8">Hello, MATE!</toc-add-entry>

Mike Gabriel from the MATE package team <a href="https://lists.debian.org/20140603113844.Horde.zKYk0_iwPq7s6PKFDuIMLg7@mail.das-netzwerkteam.de";>announced</a> 
that MATE 1.8, a desktop environment, has fully arrived in Debian. MATE is a 
fork of what was previously the GNOME v2 desktop environment. MATE is available 
in unstable, testing, and wheezy-backports. Feel free to use and test via the 
meta package mate-desktop-environment and mate-desktop-environment-extras.

<toc-add-entry name="debian-ci">The Debian Continuous Integration project</toc-add-entry>

Antonio Terceiro wrote on his <a href="http://softwarelivre.org/terceiro/blog/an-introduction-to-the-debian-continuous-integration-project";>blog</a>
 how new versions of packages can potentially break some functionality in other 
packages and what can be done about it. He detailed the Debian Continuous 
Integration project which checks inter-package dependencies across the entire 
Debian archive. The origins of the project go back to the introduction of 
the <a href="https://packages.debian.org/autopkgtest";>autopkgtest tool</a>, 
which tests packages in their installed form, and was later adopted as the 
<a href="http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=autopkgtest/autopkgtest.git;a=blob_plain;f=doc/README.package-tests;hb=HEAD";>DEP-8 standard</a>. 
The continuous integration tool, called
<a href="https://packages.debian.org/debci";>debci</a>, is run against the entire archive for 
packages that declare a test suite using the DEP-8 format. Debian CI runs at most 4 tests per day 
and publishes its results at <a href="ci.debian.net">ci.debian.net</a> every 
hour along with a global status. With the introduction of Debian CI earlier
 this year there has been a rise in the number of packages with test suites.
 Maintainers are encouraged to use test suites in their packages and read the
 <a href="http://ci.debian.net/doc/";>documentation</a> about the system.
