The Ubuntu MATE team is working on a new version of Software Boutique, a graphical package manager. The new version of Software Boutique will work as a stand-alone applications and will no longer be tied to the Ubuntu MATE Welcome greeter. The new version of Software Boutique will also support working with Snap packages. Martin Wimpress shared details on Google Plus: "While the Software Boutique will still be a carefully curated list of applications we plan to change the way the search works so that it will now interrogate the Snap store and Ubuntu archive in full. This will allow Software Boutique to be used as a general purpose package manager. Decoupling Software Boutique has several advantages: it can be installed and used on other distros (something we regularly are asked about), Software Boutique and Ubuntu MATE Welcome use fewer system resources and Software Boutqiue will dynamically adapt to the currently selected theme to better fit in with your preferred look and feel."
