Linux Mint 20.2 begins development, and LMDE 4 receives enhancements from 20.1

Linux Mint 20.2 in development

At the beginning (or right at the end) of each month, the project leader for the mint-flavored Ubuntu-based distribution publishes a newsletter explaining how things are going and what they are working on. TO At the end of December, the most outstanding news was that Linux Mint 20.1 it was going to be delayed because not everything worked perfectly on all teams. A few hours ago posted another newsletter, this time a very short one that will not excite anyone at all.

Without a doubt, the highlight is that Linux Mint 20.2 development has already started, the next update that does not yet have a codename or scheduled release date. Looking at past releases, his name is expected to start with "U", and should arrive in the summer, probably June. It is also expected to continue to be based on Ubuntu 20.04, but will add new features that have been included in more recent revisions.

Linux Mint 20.1 had a great release

Although it happened later than we anticipated, Linux Mint 20.1 had a great release. Update 20 has been opened and all new features and enhancements that shipped in Linux Mint 20.1 have been ported and pushed to LMDE 4.

We worked on and fixed some post-launch issues that had gone unnoticed during the BETA phase and are still investigating a couple of them in relation to plymouth issues with LUKS, NVIDIA resolutions, and a slight lag during the login sequence.

Lefebvre also mentions that Linux Mint 20.1 enhancements have been brought to LMDE 4, that is, the version of Linux Mint that is based directly on Debian (and not Ubuntu as the main version). Last but not least, they are working to fix some issues they encountered after the stable release, such as a lag during the login sequence.

At the end of the month that we have just released, or at the beginning of March, Lefebvre will publish another newsletter, and we hope that this time there will be more to tell, such as the name that 20.2 will carry or some of its news.

    The truth is that I am a bit disappointed with Linux Mint.
    It was always my favorite distro, so much so that it was because of it that I decided to take the step towards Gnu Linux. It has many merits: a Windows-like environment, limited resource consumption, stability, backward compatibility and very user-friendly.
    Notwithstanding the aforementioned, as of version 20 it began to give me problems, a situation that was accentuated with Linux Mint 20.1 cinnamon. When I wanted to install it, the grub damaged me, apart from that I had difficulties with the driver of my Nvidia card.
    I use Gnu Linux not only for leisure but, fundamentally, for daily work. I'm also not a geek but an entry-level user who expects an operating system to perform as it should.
    In desperation I turned to Zorin Os. It fixed the grub for me without problems and installed the proper driver for my video card. Funny what happens with Zorin Os. It is a distribution not very appreciated and mentioned by the community. Yet there it is and, at least in my case, it has never disappointed me.

      I'm sorry about what happened to you with Linux Mint, but there are many factors that can cause you to have errors; Anyway, I personally have NEVER given errors since I use it since version 17 and since then I always update with the update manager and not from 0, as some users who are scared with the update manager do.

    A cordial greeting in advance, so far everything works as it should be, except for a detail with the sound that is annoying when it starts and is loading (loud point that seems to knock the speakers off the horn). Everything works smoothly and stable. Happy with this distribution.
