Linux Mint 18.3 "Sylvia" Cinnamon & MATE Beta Officially Out, Here's What's New
Linux Mint creator Clement Lefebvre announced a few moments ago the release and immediate availability for download of the Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Cinnamon and MATE Beta editions.
Based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and running the Linux 4.10 kernel, Linux Mint 18.3 continues the long-term support (LTS) of the Linux Mint 18 series, which will receive updates and security patches until 2021. Both the Cinnamon and MATE editions have been released today with updated software and many new features.
The Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon Beta edition features the latest Cinnamon 3.6 desktop environment, which comes with support for GNOME Online Accounts, libinput support as a replacement for the Synaptics touchpad driver, a much-improved on-screen keyboard, as well as a revamped configurator for Cinnamon spices.
