The Linux Mint project manager recently published a post about the project news and records for the month of September. Recently he also published the same thing for the month of August, but this time he has not only talked about income and the new features of Linux Mint 18.3 but has also confirmed the nickname of this version, a nickname that begins with the letter S and corresponds to Sylvia.
But, more important than Sylvia's name es the list of news that Clem Lefebvre has presented in relation to the future version of Linux Mint, a version loaded with news.
Sylvia will be the feminine name of Linux Mint 18.3
If we previously said that Linux Mint 18.3 would seek simplicity in its applications; now Clem tells us that functions will not be lost, because in the case of Mint Backup, the lost functions will be provided by Timeshift, an application of restoration that will bring the new Linux Mint 18.3. MintReport will be another new tool that will be incorporated into the distribution. This tool will take care of send reports of bugs and problems that appear in the distribution. MintReport will use the Ubuntu reporting system to build on and assist in the development of future versions of Linux Mint.
Both Mint Backup and MintReport and Timeshift will be optimized for high resolution screens, configuration that will be by default in future installations of the distribution. This novelty will be supported by Cinnamon 3.6, the next version of your desktop. This desktop will bring many new features given by plugins and add-ons that we find in Cinnamon spices and that will be incorporated as a base in the next version. So it looks like Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia will be fully optimized for the novice user, but Will Linux Mint user really like it? Will this new use of applications be effective? What do you think?
