Linux Mint released the 18.2 official version, code-named “Sonya”. This is the latest update in the 18.x series, based on the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. The new version will be continuously supported in 2021, containing four versions (Cinnamon, KDE, MATE, and Xfce).
Linux Mint 18.2 improves X-Apps across desktop applications, improves the Xplayer video player’s UI, playback speed, OSD, and subtitle support, and improves the Xed text editor’s user interface and sorting capabilities. The login screen is now driven by LightDM running Slick greeter and supports HiDPI. The update manager has been adjusted to help users find the ideal balance between security updates and system stability.
