Clement Lefebvre, founder of Mint, today announced the releases of Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon and MATE editions. In separate announcements Lefebvre said, "Linux Mint 16 is the result of 6 months of incremental development on top of stable and reliable technologies. This new release comes with updated software and brings refinements and new features to make your desktop even more comfortable to use."Among the new or improved features are several performance tweaks. These are: * The boot and login sequence no longer scan your system for btrfs partitions. * The MDM display manager no longer listens or communicates over the network. * The Update Manager is now started with a delay to make it faster for the session to load. * The Software Manager features significant speed improvements. * The Linux Mint 16 ISO images are easier on the system and faster to decompress during the live session. The software manager also received lots of bug fixes and performance improvements, but users might notice the updated interface first which now features several screenshots for the apps. New artwork and theme tweaks are also apparent. A new USB formatting tool has been introduced and the system foundations also got some improvements. These include: * Safer kernel updates. * Faster boot sequence and faster login. * Better EFI support. * Better support for Steam and added to repositories * Better colors in terminal * Better help support. See the full announcements for more details and download locations.
