Linux Mint continues to work on its logo and other advanced news this month

Possible Linux Mint logosClement Lefebvre, leader of Linux Mint, posted A few minutes ago a new entry on his blog in which he tells us about everything to come in the operating system that he develops. Among what he has mentioned we have what you see above these lines: they continue working on their logo, a flatter and simpler one that looks better in modern interfaces that have gotten rid of many decorations. The idea is clear to them, but they have had to polish the design.

Lefebvre has also told us about System reports, a tool that says that it is starting to be useful and that it will help us, for example, to find out that there is a new version of Linux Mint and look for system problems in general. System Reports has been available since Linux Mint 18.3, but it is not yet working as and for what it was designed.

Linux Mint LMDE 4, codename "Debbie"

On the other hand, he has revealed to us the code name of LMDE 4: Debbie. LMDE stands for Linux Mint Debian Edition, and as a Debian-based operating system, Lefebvre says it fits the bill perfectly. What he has not revealed has been the date of its launch, not even when it will be more or less.

What may interest more users is that work continues on Linux Mint 19.3, the next version of the operating system to be released at the end of 2019. The developer team is currently improving translations of the default date format in both Cinnamon and MATE. It is also interesting that they have made improvements to the XAppStatusIcon API, which makes it easier to create applets for Cinnamon and MATE.

The last thing Lefevbre mentions in his October post was MintBox 3, something he did to say that «he looks amazing and his speed is fantastic«. But not everything is perfect and they are working to improve a bug related to the CPU and in discussions with Compulab to fix it. I don't want to be a party pooper or anything like that, but I do want to mention Ubuntu Cinnamon, a project that you are taking your first steps and that you need to get Lefebvre and his team to improve their software even more, so we will all win.

    Definitely Linux Mint Cinnamon is the best distribution for most users: stable, fast and very friendly (for those who come from Windows). I remember that four years ago when I decided to migrate from Windows it was the distribution that definitely convinced me to stay in the world of Gnu Linux.
