News and summary:

  • Many thanks to all the people who donated during the summer and all our sponsors. This is helping us a lot.
  • On the business side of things, our sponsorship agreement with Blue Systems is coming to and end. That’s not to say cooperation will stop between Mint KDE and Netrunner, but we’ll soon be looking for a new Platinum sponsor to step in.
  • We’ve been relatively quiet here on the blog and also on Segfault during June and July but a lot of exciting things happened. Our partnership with CompuLab continued with the upcoming release of the MintBox 2. The Xfce and KDE editions of Linux Mint 15 were released and some really exciting new features landed in Cinnamon 2.0 (in preparation for Linux Mint 16 “Petra”): Window snapping and brand new user management applets and configuration modules.
  • As planned, Cinnamon 2.0 will use its own backend and act as an independent desktop environment. The work on the new cinnamon-session and cinnamon-settings-daemon modules is almost complete.
  • The team is focused on Linux Mint 16, planned for November 2013. August, September and October should bring a lot of exciting improvements.
