One of the best alternatives to Ubuntu is Linux Mint, the system on which it is based. I think it gained popularity when Canonical moved to Unity and is still the preferred choice for many Linux users today. There is a lot in their ideas drawer, among which the graphical environment developed by the project (Cinnamon) stands out, but they have also been news for some time for launching applications such as warpinator o hypnotix. These applications will soon be joined by another, although this will be less exclusive, but the most outstanding news is that we already know the first details of Linux Mint 20.2.
The aim of the Uma's codenameLike a certain actress who appears in Kill Bill, Linux Mint 20.2 will arrive this summer, but there is no confirmed date yet. It has been mentioned that there will be a beta in the middle of the month we just entered, so the final version is expected to arrive sometime in July. As for their news, the first thing they tell us about in the this month's newsletter It is from the new application that we mentioned.
Bulky, new app to rename Linux Mint 20.2 files
Clement Lefebvre has presented Bulky a few hours ago. Whoever knows English, and even more so knowing what it is for, will know where the name comes from: "Bulk" + something is what is said in English when you want to do that something in batches. What Bulky will do is rename many files at the same time, for which one of the best examples can be when you make several screenshots for a tutorial and you want to put all of them the same name with a number at the end. The app will not be included in the Xfce edition since Thunar already has a native option, hence we mentioned that this application is not as exclusive as the others.
As for other news, Nemo will be able to search content, and not just files as before. The change will come from the hand of Nemo 5.0. On the other hand, Warpinator will be able to choose which network to use, be it wired or WiFi, for example. An option to compress content will also be added that will make transfers three times faster.
Unlike on other occasions, Lefebvre has not provided data on how to test Bulky ahead of time, so to test these and other news we will have to wait a couple of weeks until the beta is released.
