Monthly News – November 2018

Many thanks to all the people who help our project financially. Donations are up again, more than 500 of you sent us funds in October and we now have 129 patrons on Patreon.

The BETA release for Linux Mint 19.1 will be out this week. We’re counting on you to help us find bugs and to help us fix them, so that we can raise the quality of the release and get to stable before Christmas.

Some of the new features were described here on this blog, others will be unveiled tomorrow. This is an exciting time for all of us and we hope you enjoy it and have fun with the new release.
