Clement Lefebvre, head of the Linux Mint project, said:

“With the stable release behind us, the upgrade path opened and the new packages ported towards LMDE 3, we started work on Linux Mint 19.3. This next release is planned for Christmas, so our development cycle is quite short and we need to move fast.”

In the announcement, Clement Lefebvre talked about several upcoming changes to Linux Mint 19.3. Clement Lefebvre, head of the Linux Mint project, said that the Cinnamon and MATE flavor versions will improve support for HiDPI/4K displays, introduce new icons, clearer images, enable multiple flags in the language settings, and add to the Cinnamon theme settings.

The system tray icon will receive significant improvements, with sharper and clearer images on the HiDPI/4K display, as well as stand-alone applets for the Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce versions. The new version will change the language settings, allowing users to set the time format according to regional format.
