Before sharing all the new goodies shipping with the new release, let me tell you that the development team has fixed 217 bugs in the operating system. These bugs pertained to different areas like native applications, kernel, file manager, desktop environment, etc.

Moving on to new functions, deepin 15.6 ships with a new welcome program that helps you customize your workstation as per your personal taste. Once you boot the machine after installation, this welcome screen will guide you to set up icon theme, desktop mode, and more.
