  • mintCast released five podcast episodes, including interviews with Boo and Justin: #54, #55, #56, #57 and #58

Summary:

  • March started with some very bad news. Due to personal circumstances Ikey had to focus on his personal life and could no longer work on Linux Mint.
  • The mintCast project was extremely successful and released 5 quality episodes, interviewing 2 team members.
  • The LXDE edition was released as stable and the Xfce edition switched to Debian.
  • From a financial point of view, none of the figures were bad, but none were particular high either. The overall daily income went down by 6%.
  • Improvements were made to the Update Manager and the Desktop Settings tool for the upcoming Mint 11 and LMDE.
  • In April, improvements should be made to the Software Manager and time will be spent in testing our desktop, including new packages such as LibreOffice and Firefox 4 and making sure upstream changes related to Gnome and Unity don’t impact it in any negative way.
