Summary:

  • All the new features and improvements released in Linux Mint 11 were made available to LMDE. Firefox 5 was also released for LMDE and Thunderbird 5 will follow. We’re currently working on a new update mechanism and a fork of mintupdate dedicated to Debian. A new 100Gbps server was recently acquired to host what will become the new LMDE repositories. Improvements are also planned on the installer and the ISOs will get a respin in July.
  • To face the growth of the project and the increase in our user base, we migrated both the website and the repositories at the beginning of June. The website was moved on our eUKhost server in the UK and the repositories were migrated to a new 100Mbps server with unmetered bandwidth. Both services have been running really well since and with much better performance than before.
  • The LXDE edition passed QA and an RC was released.
  • We’re currently testing the KDE edition of Linux Mint 11.
  • Thanks to all the people who purchased a Linux Mint T-shirt. I hope they enjoy it as much as I do (I got two polo shirts myself and as you can imagine, I really enjoy wearing them). Whether it’s the promotion or the sales, it’s nice to see it happen and this helps Linux Mint. Our partner HELLOTUX sold more than 100 black Linux Mint t-shirts. This was an excellent result and these sales brought $545 to our project. To extend the range of Linux Mint products, both the T-shirt and the Polo shirt are now also available in White: http://www.hellotux.com/Category_Linux_Mint.php
  • In partnership with OxyPress, Linux Mint is  publishing a printed magazine in the USA called “Linux Mint 11 Identity Kit”. The magazine is available in newsagents throughout the country. You can also get more information about it online and read one of the articles featured inside it by visiting the following link http://www.linuxidentity.com/us/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=5055
  • There is a significant raise in our user base which is estimated at just below 10% this month.
  • From a financial point of view, we’re up 19% this month. This was the second biggest increase in the history of the project! I’d like to thank all the people who donated to us, our sponsors, and all the people who recently switched to Linux Mint. This gives us more empowerment and makes everything much easier. Whether it’s contracting some work to be done, paying the bills or getting this new 1Gbps server, your support helps us greatly.
