Personally, I think it is the flavor that was least needed, since Linux Mint exists without many restrictions / obligations from Canonical, but it has also achieved its purpose. Ubuntu Cinnamon it will become an official flavor next April, coinciding with the launch of Lunar Lobster. Or, taking into account that a beta has to be launched, the officiality could arrive at the end of March. Separate calendar, it already seems that it is confirmed.
Interestingly, Ubuntu Cinnamon was the first to appear back in 2019, and later other projects such as UbuntuDDE, Ubuntu Unity or Ubuntu Web were presented. Unity Edition he turned in official flavor last October, and they probably gave it preference because the desk was an old acquaintance and the project leader also took care of others like gamebuntu. Ubuntu Unity brought back 9 official flavors, and with Ubuntu Cinnamon it will reach ten, a figure that I don't remember if it has been reached before, since flavors like MATE and Budgie should have coincided with Edubuntu and GNOME, something that I think never happened.
Ubuntu Cinnamon 23.04, official flavor in April
At the time of writing this article, Joshua Peisach, project leader, has not yet made the news official, neither on Twitter, nor on Telegram, nor even on his official blog. But Lukasz Zemczak from Canonical has sent you an email welcoming you to the team, but not before telling him that he has been able to discuss it with other members and that they have reached an agreement. In the email she shows her interest to start collaborating, but they have to see how to do it since they are not in the same time zone.
On what this taste will be like, Joshua explained back in the day it would be something like Kubuntu and KDE neon. KDE neon is KDE's operating system, and all packages arrive before it when they are in good shape. Kubuntu is run by KDE developers, but at the behest of Canonical. Although Cinnamon is developed by the Linux Mint team, it is also shipped to Debian and Ubuntu. Therefore, the news will arrive before Linux Mint. Ubuntu Cinnamon will receive them later, but that would also allow it to be a bit more stable (in theory).
Ubuntu Cinnamon 23.04 will arrive, if there is no change of plans, together with the rest of the Lunar Lobster family this April, with Linux 6.2, with the snaps by imposition and with the latest (or penultimate) version of Cinnamon.
