Clement Lefebvre has announced the final release of Linux Mint 14, code name "Nadia", in MATE (version 1.4) or Cinnamon (version 1.6) editions: "The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 14 'Nadia'. For the first time since Linux Mint 11, the development team was able to capitalize on upstream technology which works and fits its goals. After 6 months of incremental development, Linux Mint 14 features an impressive list of improvements, increased stability and a refined desktop experience. We're very proud of MATE, Cinnamon, MDM and all the components used in this release, and we're very excited to show you how they all fit together in Linux Mint 14."
Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based distribution whose goal is to provide a
more complete out-of-the-box experience by including browser plugins,
media codecs, support for DVD playback, Java and other components. It
also adds a custom desktop and menus, several unique configuration
tools, and a web-based package installation interface. Linux Mint is
compatible with Ubuntu software repositories.
