Hi everybody! Before we get started, I’d like to thank all the people who support us, many thanks to all of you for helping us the way you do.

We’ve got quite a bit of news this month and we’re eager to get your feedback.

Website Design

We’re working on a new design for our main website. When the current design (and logo) were originally designed they carried a strong identity and we grew quite attached to them. For a while now we were hoping to get a new unique design which would look brand new but still carry that very same feel, and that was very hard to achieve. In the meantime, we stayed with something that was stuck in the past and that just doesn’t work well nowadays. We’ve heard many people ask why our website looks so old, and I think it’s time we do something about that.

Rather than waiting forever for the perfect design, we decided to purchase modern looking designs which were based on Bootstrap and to use them to build something clean, that would work on all devices and that could be maintained and modified easily going forward.

Here is a quick preview of what we’re working on. Bear in mind that some elements are likely to change:

The layout above is used by content pages. The main landing page has a different layout, with no sidebar, less text and more prominent elements to introduce what Linux Mint is and present its main features.

We’re currently focusing our efforts on the header bar and the sponsors section.

The header bar should receive a background or a texture which will make it more minty and give the website more identity. Its navigation menu will also be centered and placed below the title to allow for a larger logo.

In the sponsors section we’re hoping to use monochrome logos which will fit better with the design.

The round Mint logo is a work in progress and it’s something we’re experimenting with, to tackle some of the issues we have with the current logo:

  • It doesn’t scale down well. When small (for instance for a favicon, or an application menu logo), its design is too complex to be rendered properly in a limited number of pixels.
  • It looks off-center because of its non-symmetrical border, with empty space on the left and none on the right.

We’ve been working around these issues for a while now. In previous releases we shipped with flat, semi-flat and symbolic versions of the current logo (your application menu logo in 19.1 is an example of this) but we can’t address all the issues without removing that border in the shape of a leaf.

One the one hand, it’s hard because we’re attached to it, it’s a strong visual symbol and it’s been part of our identity. On the other hand it opens the door to crisper visuals, better looking panels, menus and splash screens so we’re looking into it.

Performance improvements in Cinnamon

Some of the performance improvements we talked about last month landed in Cinnamon. The window manager received many changes to further decrease input lag and the application menu applet now loads and runs twice as fast as before.

DocInfo and AppSys, two very important internal components were reviewed and simplified.

The cinnamon-menus library was ported to Meson and is currently being reviewed and simplified by Stephen Collins.

Improvements in the Mint tools

gm10 is leading the charge in improving the Mint tools.

Here’s a preview of what landed in the Update Manager already:

  • Automated removal of old kernels and no longer needed packages
  • Inhibition of system shutdown/reboot during automated tasks (automated removal and/or automated updates)
  • Persistent rotated logs (in /var/log/mintupload.log)
  • Auto-refesh is now configurable
  • Specific versions can be blacklisted (so you can blacklist a particular update for a package without blacklisting future versions of it)
  • Detection of APT locks and retry mechanism (the manager no longer fails when APT is locked)

The cache used by the Software Manager was moved to mint-common, turned into a Python module and given the ability to recognize manually installed software. This is achieved by analyzing the installer logs coming from Ubiquity. As a consequence, in Linux Mint, the Backup Tool and the Software Manager will be able to share the same cache and to list not only the applications which were installed via the Software Manager, but also the applications which were installed via other means.

System Reports

We spent some time working on mintreport, the “System Reports” tool.

The user interface now features an XApp sidebar and a new page was added to show the system information and make it easy for users to copy it into the forums or upload it to a pastebin website.

We’re also happy to announce mintreport is coming to LMDE 3. In the past, mintreport relied on Ubuntu’s “apport” to collect and generate crash reports. It now uses systemd-coredump which adds more information to the stack traces and is available in other distributions.

Many thanks for your support and the help you’re sending us. We received 675 donations and $22,803 in December alone! We’ve never received so much before, I don’t think we’ve ever received funds from so many people either, and the figures at the top of that list are incredible. This was before Christmas and after the release of Linux Mint 19.1 and the message is very clear, you love what we do 🙂

It’s always a treat for us to unveil what we’ve been working on and to have it ready on release day. That’s when we get feedback and we see people enjoy it. Witnessing a happy user who is delighted with the changes we implemented is very special, and so is the general feeling that a release went well and that its reception was very positive. We get that thanks to a vocal community here on the blog, on the forums and on IRC. When a month later stats show close to 700 people were so happy with us they sent us money, it gives us a sense of scale and we know there’s also a silent audience who enjoyed what we did. It’s humbling, it’s motivating, it’s really a great feeling. Thank you very much for this, not just for the money, but for that awesome feeling you’re giving us.

The 19.1 release and the port to LMDE 3 went well so we were able to start the development cycle early this month. Normally we catch up with pull requests (we currently have 92 open) and we start implementing what’s on the roadmap, but as we’ve got time in front of us and in reaction to some of the feedback we gathered, we spent most of January on R&D, design considerations and ambitious tasks. Three areas in particular were given attention: Artwork, performance and the idea of splitting Cinnamon into different processes. I usually prefer to talk about what we achieved rather than what we envision and this certainly isn’t a promise. We’re deep into this at the moment, it will lead to improvements but some of these ideas and projects will also probably fail or not lead to anything in the short/middle term.

In terms of artwork, we’re considering adding more contrast (again), changing the default font, and giving our boot and splash screens (isolinux, grub and plymouth) a new look. We’re also looking at the possibility for the boot screens of the live ISO to support language and keymap selections.

Another area we’re working on is the Linux Mint website. We purchased some beautiful designs and we’re selecting them and adapting them to turn www.linuxmint.com (and eventually also community.linuxmint.com) into websites which look more modern and which look good no matter what device you browse them with.

In Cinnamon we’re reviewing two internal components: DocInfo, which is responsible for the management of recent documents, and Appsys (in conjunction with cinnamon-menus) which is responsible for application metadata (how to launch a particular app, how to build the application menu, which windows are related to which app, what icons/actions does an app have..etc..). There is a lot of technical debt in these two components and they account for most of the loading time.

We’re also looking at the application menu at lot, simplifying its use of DocInfo and Appsys of course, but also trying to reduce its impact on framerate (itzexor in particular is looking at the Clutter and St objects we’re using and optimizations in PopupMenu classes) and being smarter with lazy-loading. Some of the discussions lead to the idea of replacing the “All applications” category with a category which would list recently used and newly installed applications, other than the functional interest in such a feature, it would allow us to boost the menu performance.

Michael Webster is working on something really complicated, something we’ve talked about since the dawn of time… splitting Cinnamon into multiple processes. He’s studying the possibility of having applets run in their own process and render objects remotely. This is very ambitious and pretty much R&D at this point. We’re hoping he’ll succeed with a prototype. Failing that there’s also the idea of keeping the rendering of the applet content in Cinnamon itself and only delegating the processing (similar to dbus–menu), or to keep Cinnamon and applets together and split away the WM.

Jason Hicks continues his work on improving the grouped window list, the window manager and optimization of input lag. It’s a bit complicated within the team now because we’re all focused on slightly different areas but they often impact each others. We’re not going as fast as we’d want, it’s hard to reach consensus at times, the design concepts at play are complex and some of the metrics are very hard to measure,  but we’re talking about this a lot and making progress slowly but surely.

We spent time on our own development tools also, in particular on something called cinnamon-stat-stracker which is able to measure loading times, and idle resource usage (CPU, RAM, FDs..etc) over time.

We welcomed gm10 within the team. He’s contributing a lot to some of the mint tools, in particular to the Update Manager and the Software Sources.

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you had a great holiday season and you enjoyed the 19.1 release. We were delighted to read your reactions and go through your feedback. We had a smooth release and 19.1 got a great reception. The fact that it was ready just before Christmas made it feel really special.

Although we needed a break after the stable release, we were able to interact with BETA testers and fix a significant amount of bugs thanks to their reports. I’d like to apologize for posting this late and send my thanks to all the people who helped us test and identify bugs during the BETA phase. We release Cinnamon an entire month before Linux Mint, and we see it happen every single time, when we hit the Mint BETA, we get a huge amount of bug reports and the quality of the product increases significantly. Of course, we get early feedback from rolling distributions and we’re grateful for that too, but there’s nothing more important, in terms of testing, than our BETA release.

This January, our first priority is to port all our new packages towards LMDE 3. This is happening right now, and it will be followed by a review of all the pull requests which didn’t make it in time for the 19.1 release.

After that we’ll open up the next development cycle and we’ll start working on the new features which will land in Linux Mint 19.2. As usual, we’ve got many ideas but very little time, we’ll do our best to make as many of them happen as possible and we’ll post previews as we implement them.

Many thanks to all of you for your support, for your help and for your donations. This is an amazing project to work on, with a fantastic community, and a fantastic team. Here’s to 2019, I hope we’ll have a great year 2019 together.
