Monthly News – November 2019

Many thanks to all the donors and sponsors who help fund our project. We received more than 500 donations in October. Many thanks to you for your support.

You probably know we’re aiming for a Christmas release this year 🙂 All 3 editions of Linux Mint 19.3 passed QA and we’ll be announcing the BETA release on Tuesday!

We’re really excited about this release. The 19.x series is two years old and feels very polished. There are exciting features in 19.3 we haven’t talked about on the blog yet. The software selection changed and three new apps are coming in. The artwork is new and makes 19.3 feel really fresh.

We also have tray support for system reports. That’s something we think you’ll enjoy, and it helps us communicate with you better. It’s yet another way for us to document issues, workarounds and solutions and to target that information in a precise way, when it’s relevant to people who need it. This is new in 19.3, but it’s also something we’ll backport… so when the 19.3 stable release is officially announced, you won’t just find out about it here on this blog, you’ll also be notified from within Linux Mint.

I hope you all enjoy the upcoming release. We had a lot of fun working on it and it’s a real pleasure to see you use it. We look forward to receiving your feedback and to fix any bugs which might have passed our QA.
