The short entry this month only advances that Linux Mint 20.2 is correcting the latest bugs and that some news will make the "backport"

Linux Mint 20.2

In one of the shortest monthly entries I can remember reading, Clement Lefebvre told us had talked that Linux Mint 20.2 is right around the corner. This month they have not mentioned any new applications, such as which will allow us to rename batch files, neither the name nor the release date of the stable version, but that the expected moment will come soon and that they are working on the final touches.

About when it will come, we know it will during this summer, but not the exact date. We also know the code name, which will be Uma, but this is all information that was provided to us in previous months. This time, the most they have told us is that they have a few bugs to correct before being able to call this version "stable" and that some functions will be carried over to previous versions of the operating system, which in English is called "backport ».

Linux Mint 20.2 Uma is coming this summer

We will be very brief with this month's news as the stable release of Linux Mint 20.2 is just around the corner. We still have a few things to check and a few bug reports to review before calling it stable, but we're very close. After the stable release we will open the upgrade path from Linux Mint 20.1 and Linux Mint 20 and port all new packages to LMDE 4. Some of the improvements and fixes made in Linux Mint 20.2 will also be rolled back to older versions of 20.x.

Shortly after the release of Linux Mint 20.2 they will allow upgrade from the same operating system if you are on Linux Mint 20.1 or 20, and will include all packages in LMDE 4, which is the version of the operating system that is directly based on Debian (the normal one is based on Ubuntu).

Among the novelties that will include «Uma» we have bulky, the app that will allow you to rename files in batches and that will not be in the XFCE edition because Thunar already has that capacity, or improvements in Nemo.

    I'm going to have to leave Mint, much to my regret, an old kernel that doesn't support anything new, lickable.
