Developer of the month:

Each month we feature one developer and explain his contributions to the community. Development is a lot of fun and it doesn’t take much to get started. If you’re tempted to join the team, don’t hesitate to follow our development on http://github.com/linuxmint and come and chat with the developers at #linuxmint-dev (irc.spotchat.org).

This month’s “developer of the month” is: Michael Webster (mtwebster)!

In terms of commits, Michael is the 4th biggest contributor to the Cinnamon project. Many of the late fixes going in the Cinnamon 1.6 series came from him. This month, he focused on Nemo, the Cinnamon file manager and gave it numerous fixes and a lot of new features:

  • View buttons
  • GTK Bookmarks support in MoveTo/CopyTo
  • Support for Thunderbird, Balsa and Evolution
  • Proper Open as Root support
  • Set as Wallpaper

Nemo in Linux Mint 14

The result is a fantastic application which complements the improvements and refinements of Cinnamon 1.6 and makes the desktop even more comfortable to use.

The improved file browser will be featured in Linux Mint 14 and backported to Linux Mint 13 and LMDE.

News and summary:

  • Many thanks to our sponsors, partners and donors. The amount of support we got this month was amazing and it really helps us focus on the development. We’re ahead of schedule, we achieved all our goals, I’m not sure what to say, we’re really grateful!
  • Linux Mint 14 MATE Edition and Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon Edition passed QA and were approved for an RC release yesterday. They should be announced in the coming days.
  • Both MATE 1.4 and Cinnamon 1.6 bring significant improvements to their previous releases. They will be backported to Linux Mint 13 and LMDE.
  • The stable release of Linux Mint 14 will be available at the end of this month for MATE and Cinnamon.
  • The following releases are planned for December 2012: Linux Mint 14 Xfce, Linux Mint 14 KDE, LMDE UP6.
  • Improvements in live-installer and a new tool called DDM which simplifies the installation of 3rd party drivers are also planned for LMDE. Depending on how fast they progress, new LMDE ISOs based on UP6 might be released in December or in January.
