Great news! Linux Mint 19.2 is now available with its traditional separate releases based on different desktop environments. Think I might give it a try and compare Linux Mint 19.2 to the Ubuntu 19.04 experience.
Linux Mint 19.2 Tina
This release of Linux Mint is codenamed Tina.
Main improvements I’d like to try are:
- ability to blacklist versions of certain packages so that you block unwanted upgrades
- Update Manager’s newly added easy way to remove old kernels
- boot repair functionality added to the boot CD – so if there’s an issue with booting your system after install you have a convenient way to troubleshoot
- updated Linux Kernel – but not the 5.x branch, it seems
- further improvements to Xapps – it’s an interesting idea to create regularly updated and conveniently maintained set of tools
