There is an updated Linux program for Plant Base – Beta 9, which is still based on version 2.1.12. It’s now available on the Downloads page.
There are no functional changes but many small adjustments to the user interface. These are mainly to improve compatibility with a wider range of Desktop Environments and display themes.
Although the UI displayed fine on several common DE’s some others were quite ugly. The changes in this Beta make it a bit more forgiving, but it’s worth remembering that different theme settings can dramatically affect the display. Sometimes a few small tweaks to the theme settings can improve the appearance considerably!
As always a small update file is available for existing users as well as the full install file. The database itself is the same as the previous 2.1.11 and 2.1.12 releases.
