Monthly News – December 2018

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.
