Summary:

  • In August, LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) was finalized. The rolling distribution based on Debian is now being tested by our QA team and a public release should be out early this month.
  • The Fluxbox edition is also in testing and waiting to be approved for a stable release.
  • August was by far the most quiet month we ever got to see. The activity on the blog, on the forums, the amount of emails received, the donations, and even the sponsorships were extremely low compared to previous months. In terms of income, we’re not doing too bad. We’re down 2.7% but we’re hoping for a more dynamic month in September.
  • Early September will see the release of the new anticipated Debian-based distribution: LMDE. And we’re also really excited to start the work on the new Linux Mint 10 which will be released in November.
  • If like many you were away in August, we’d like to welcome you back and we look forward to an exciting month. The Summer was relaxing, but Autumn is going to be fun!
