People who wish to enjoy the most recent version of the MATE desktop environment on the popular Ubuntu MATE distribution are in luck: Martin Wimpress has announced MATE 1.14 is now available for people running Ubuntu MATE 16.04. "You might be wondering why it has taken two months to release this PPA? Here's why: they've been well tested. The packages in this PPA are derived from the MATE Desktop 1.14 packages that were recently uploaded to Debian Unstable. The upgrade issues encountered in Debian Unstable have been fixed and all the packages have transitioned to Debian Testing. All the upgrade fixes are included in this PPA to ensure a smooth transition. We also waited for the first MATE Desktop bugfix release, so what you are getting today is actually MATE Desktop 1.14.1." Details on how to install the MATE update can be found in the announcement.
