As much as an operating system improves, if its image does not, we will feel that we are working on something a bit outdated. Although many Linux users care more about performance, Linux Mint It was not born thinking about that (but also), but to attract those of Windows and Ubuntu when it moved to Unity. The Ubuntu's next unofficial mint flavor release will arrive in December, and it will do so with user interface changes.
The developer team led by Clement Lefebvre is now focused on reviewing the image and Linux Mint sensations. At the moment many small changes are being discussed and added to the desktop image, such as that Mint-X has improved the notifications within the app and an improved image in the Nemo bar. Mint-Y will also improve and, among other things, support dark applications.
Linux Mint 20.3 will arrive in December with an improved dark theme
Among the things that will improve on the dark theme are the Celluloid, Xviewer, Pix, Hypnotix applications and the GNOME terminal. Each of these applications will have a new setting in your preferences to enable / disable dark mode, but at the moment it will not be available in Xfce since Xfwm does not support it. On the other hand, Mint-Y will receive new emblems, that is, icons for the different extensions.
The rest of the august note It is completed by two less important points: one already told us last month, and that is that the new website is already 75% complete. You can track progress on this link, where a list of what remains to be done is displayed, but not the web page itself. The other news is that Linux Mint has a new sponsor, Das Keyboard, a mechanical keyboard company. Regarding the operating system, last month they announced that would arrive in december.
