Summary:

  • We had three releases in February, but it’s within the team and the project that things changed a lot. We now have Ikey Doherty working full time for us, and we signed a very important partnership with eUKhost.
  • The partnership allowed us to migrate our forums and community website to a 16GB RAM server. We’re planning to migrate the main website this week. These migrations make our websites more responsive and more reliable, and they also free other servers for development and testing.
  • Ikey focused on triaging the bugs on Launchpad and reduced the number of “new” bugs from 450 to 0. Bugs will be processed on a daily basis to keep this number as low as possible and behind the triaging, we’ll implement and release fixes often as well to reduce the number of overall “open” bugs.
  • Development is ongoing on Linux Mint 11, and an upcoming switch to LMDE for the Fluxbox edition.
  • Our monthly stats (donations, sponsorships, traffic, advertising) seem low when compared to other months. Considering February comes with only 28 days and looking at our average daily income, we’re actually up 2.2% and doing better than ever before. Once more we’re happy to report that last month was our best month since the foundation of the project.

  1. reduced the number of “new” bugs from 450 to 0
    Great job Ikey! 🙂

    an upcoming switch to LMDE for the Fluxbox edition
    Debian Testing + fluxbox will be brilliant. But please let the main version remain Ubuntu based.

    You haven’t given the statistics of LMDE.

  2. I’m happy to hear about the reduction of new (and overall) bugs as a result of Ikey Doherty’s hiring and congrats on your continued and well-earned success!

  3. hello, because don´t create a package to install the kde to my julia, i like the 2 desktops and show it to my friends, and installig the kde or kubuntu desktop is not the same.
    thanks

  4. Thank you very much for such a nice distro )) I’ve installed it on my netbook recently and it works really nice)) Since then I prefer mint’s netbook to macbook!
