Monthly News – July 2022

Linux Mint 21 is coming out today!

Many thanks to all the people who participated in the BETA. 152 issues were reported in the last 15 days and this allowed us to fix many bugs in preparation for the STABLE release.

Many thanks also to people who donate to our project and to our sponsors for backing Linux Mint.

Although Linux Mint 21 is now stable, we still have a few fixes and improvements planned post-release. These will come as software updates.

We’re also focused on opening the upgrade path from Linux Mint 20.3 to Linux Mint 21. We’ll make announcements when this is ready.

Early August LMDE 5 will receive the new Cinnamon 5.4 along with the new features from Linux Mint 21.

Many thanks to all of you. We hope you’ll enjoy this new release.
