MATE 1.26.0 upgrade ready

MATE 1.26.0 build finished Yesterday, and this evening I tested the Upgrade. Everything has been working as expected, so I did send packages to the latest software packages repository.

I recommend using the Update Station to upgrade to MATE 1.26.0.

An ISO will be available soon to download on the latest build section of the download page.

I will most likely publish the ISO this weekend.
