News and summary:

  • Many thanks to all the people who help fund Linux Mint. We received more than $7,000 this month in donations alone. Almost 300 people came to help this November. It’s a drop in the ocean compared to the size of the user base but it’s also a huge help for the size of our project. It’s inspiring to imagine 300 people together in a room, to look at the variety of places they come from and to realize they all gathered just to give us a hand. I feel really grateful for that and this month feels very special also, because we’re able to give back with a brand new release.
  • Linux Mint 16 “Petra” is out. We’re delighted with the reception it received so far. The feedback is very rich and very interesting and it helps us a lot in defining the roadmap for the next release.
  • The KDE edition was approved for an RC release today and should become publicly available on Sunday. I was very impressed with it personally. I think KDE fans will really enjoy it.
  • The Xfce edition is almost ready. It’s held by a single issue which we’re fixing at the moment. If everything goes right we should see an RC release next week.
  • MATE 1.6 and Cinnamon 2.0 are being backported to Linux Mint 13. Announcements will be made after packages are built and fully tested.
  • Work is starting on LMDE UP8. We’re expecting it to hit “incoming” before Christmas.
