Earlier this week, Linux Mint 18.2 finally arrived on the market after spending some time in the beta stage. According to the official blog post about its release, this build "comes with updated software and brings refinements and many new features to make your desktop even more comfortable to use."

Linux Mint 18.2 is a long term support release that will get support until 2021 and packs the following highlights:

  • Cinnamon 3.4 and Cinnamon Spices (themes, applets, desklets and extensions for the desktop maintained by third parties)
  • Blueberry (improved Bluetooth support)
  • reworked Xed interface 
  • many interface refinements for Xplayer 
  • improved Update Manager
  • brand new login screen based on LightDM, highly customizable
  • Brasero no longer installed by default (not much use burning CDs and DVDs nowadays)

The system requirements remain decent for such a fully-featured distro - 1 GB RAM (2 GB recommended), 15 GB disk space (20 GB recommended), 1024X768-pixel resolution. There are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions available for download.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
