I’ll go through the details later on but I can already confirm that there will be a second BETA release for the Main Edition of Linux Mint 5 Elyssa. If things go as planned and provided Exploder agrees to release it, I’m hoping to have it ready and available for download on Monday the 26th of May.
A huge number of changes were made since BETA 032 so we couldn’t afford to go towards a stable release without having a second BETA release tested by the community.
Among the major changes:
– Firefox 3 upgraded to RC1.
– A lot of bugfixes (I’ll detail these in a later post)
– A lot of changes in the package base (I’ll detail this as well).
I’ve also cleaned a lot of things and the ISO is currently 630MB… Of course it will get bigger as we approach the BETA release as there are things I also want to add (spell checkers for instance).
