Monthly News – June 2017

Written by Clem on Saturday, July 1st, 2017

Many thanks to all the people who reported issues and who helped us fix bugs during the BETA.

All four editions passed QA and will be released as stable in a couple of days.

LMDE received MATE 1.18 early and some updates associated with Linux Mint 18.2. Early this month we’ll backport the rest of the updates and bring LMDE on par with the new release. These updates will include Cinnamon 3.4 and the new Xapps.

Upgrade paths will be opened to let Mint 18 and Mint 18.1 users easily upgrade towards 18.2 from their Update Manager. Announcements will be made when this is ready.

I’d like to thank all the people who donated to us. You sent us 647 donations in a single month!

This is one of the most exciting times in our release cycle. First because you’re about to start using all the features and improvements we’ve been working on, and it’s a real pleasure for us to see you discover them and enjoy them. And second, because once the release is out it opens the door to a new development cycle. We’ve got time, no constraints and we can be ambitious again. Developers can start thinking about big projects and what they want to work on or see achieved for 18.3. I’ve got quite a few ideas myself and there are a few things I just can’t wait to start working on.

But first, let’s enjoy the release of Linux Mint 18.2. Many thanks to all of you who help our project and empower us. We’re now just a few days away.
