Yesterday was an important day for users of Ubuntu's unofficial mint flavor because Clement Lefebvre and his team threw Linux Mint 20But they had already been doing prep work all week. Between 24 and 48 hours before the launch they had already uploaded the new ISO images, but, as explained in their June monthly newsletter, days before they had already been preparing a user guide in which they explain various things.
Although link la User's guide they explain that «This guide is not the final»And that« Econtent is being added slowly but surely«, They already deal with three topics: the Snap Store, the Chromium and the Grub menu. At first, the most important thing is what they explain in the Snap Store and Chromium links, explaining in first why they made this decision and how to reverse it, and in second that Chromium is only officially available as Snap, but that it can be installed from third-party repositories.
Linux Mint reversed the Grub issue
In the rest of the information they provide us this month they also tell us about two steps back, or two projects that have been delayed to be more exact. The first is the new Mint-Y color palette, of which you have more information in the related article, which will come together with Linux Mint 20.1. They have also gone back to the change that made the Grub menu always visible and the Grub theme, removed because in this release it prevented Ulyana from launching on some laptops.
The Lefebvre-led project usually releases a new version of its operating system every 5-6 months, so Linux Mint 20.1, which will continue to be based on Ubuntu 20.04, should arrive by the end of 2020.
