Many thanks for your donations and for your support.

The latest XApps and the new MATE 1.16 desktop environment were pushed towards the Linux Mint 18.1 “Serena” and LMDE 2 “Betsy” repositories.

We just finished addressing some issues with MDM, and we’re currently working on a few compatibility issues which affect the Cinnamon screensaver in LMDE and in Slackware before announcing the official release of Cinnamon 3.2.

We were expecting Cinnamon 3.2 to be out at the end of October and this probably will push the release of Linux Mint 18.1 into the month of December.

Although these issues do not affect Mint 18.x, I believe this is a good thing for the upcoming release. It’s given us more time to react to early reports coming from Arch Linux and to fix many small bugs already. This is something which usually happens during the BETA phase. We’re also seeing more and more artists updating their themes in preparation for Cinnamon 3.2.

If you are waiting for 18.1, I would like to thank you for your patience. It might seem long right now, but whenever it happens, looking back at the release, only quality will matter.

Many thanks to all the people who sent us donations and to all our sponsors us for funding our project.

Many new features and improvements were developed since the last release. We’re now just days away from feature-freeze, trying to squeeze one last thing here and there, before wrapping things up and focusing on the new release.

New sponsors

I’d also like to thank and welcome 3CX and Acunetix as our new sponsors.

Linux Mint 18.1

Linux Mint 18.1 was given its official codename today. It will be called “Serena” and it should receive its new repositories in the coming days.

MATE 1.16 is out already and Cinnamon 3.2 is just around the corner.

Linux Mint 18.1 should be released in November/December 2016 and it will be supported until 2021.

Upgrades from Linux Mint 18 to Linux Mint 18.1 will be handled by the Update Manager. They will be both safe and easy to perform.

Some of the new features…

I can’t show you everything and I can’t really go into the details here, so I’ll just show you a few cool things which landed already.

One of the most visible changes in Cinnamon 3.2 is the removal of “box pointers”. Here’s a video taken by Joseph showing the new menus in action:

As you can see, applet and desklet menus look different than before. They lost that gap they previously had with the panel or the desklet, and that distinctive pointy link which they inherited from GNOME Shell.

When we worked on Plasma 5 for the KDE edition of Linux Mint 18 we were impressed by how polished their menus looked. So we decided to redesign our menus, get rid of box pointers and re-implement the way menus appear in Cinnamon.

We’re still tuning animations and working on borders, positions and gaps but we already know the end result will make Cinnamon look more polished than before.

The new screensaver looks like this:

new_screensaver

It’s much lighter and responsive than before and it shows media controls when multimedia is playing, so you don’t need to unlock the computer to mute it, to change the volume or to switch to the next song.

In addition to showing you mirrors based on your location, the Software Sources tool now supports “worldwide” mirrors. These mirrors are anycast IP global mirrors, i.e. they have servers in different regions of the World and redirect your requests to the one that is closest to you.

capture-du-2016-10-28-12-14-46

Support for languages was also improved. Language pack detection now checks for spell checkers, fonts and a variety of other packages.

The selection and installation of input methods was also completely redesigned. You now choose which language you’re interested in, and this installs support for typing in this language and recommends methods to select.
