Linux Mint 20.2 will be called Uma, will arrive in July and will include an app to rename batch files

Linux Mint 20.2

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.

With 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.

    Nothing, more crap and more crap, so that the distro gets worse and worse. Mint is not even close to what it used to be, now it is a bloated and heavy distro, with useless things.

    You install it and then you have a good time uninstalling everything that does not work.

    Currently xubuntu is doing much better and although, for my taste, it also comes overloaded and you also have to uninstall a lot of things, it does not bring anywhere near the time bomb that Mint brings.

    And xubuntu flies compared to Mint xfce, a shame, but those who make distros believe that the best thing is to take out and take out and take out new things to recharge the distro more, when their main concern should be, more and more speed, speed and speed and provide a start menu with what you want to install, as with the old antergos or now endevour os.

    Unlike the partner above, if I use the new apps that they are incorporating such as the local network and warpinator, and now with Bulky it is something that I needed mint, apart they are too small apps of no more than 10 or 20 mbs, I think you lose more It takes time to desistarlas to leave them there, they do not run in the background so they do not take up memory in the system, complaining about the capacity of hard drives at present is ridiculous, and as in Linux it still has very complicated procedures to install or adjust, I prefer to have tools to spare than to lack them !!, and not have to deal with and flood hours and hours in tutorials many times outdated on how to install something I need and uselessly waste my time
