Repost from Clement Lefebvre on Linux Mint website:

I would like to apologize to the community, the media, and the journalists who wrote to us to know more about our upcoming release. We’ve been extremely secretive and 3 weeks past the Ubuntu release it’s still unclear for most people exactly what the next Linux Mint will look like. The reason we’ve been so silent is because we didn’t want to promise something we could not guarantee. Today we’re finally ready to give you an in-depth preview of Linux Mint 12, codename “Lisa”. I hope you’ll enjoy it and I look forward to reading your feedback.

Gnome 2 vs new desktops

In Linux Mint 11 we made the decision to keep Gnome 2.32. The traditional Gnome desktop, although it’s not actively developed by the Gnome development team anymore, is still by far the most popular desktop within the Linux community. As other distributions adopted new desktops such as Unity and Gnome 3, many users felt alienated and consequently migrated to Linux Mint. We recorded a 40% increase in a single month and we’re now quickly catching up with Ubuntu for the number #1 spot within the Linux desktop market. Read more…

Two days ago, Martin Pitt -stable release updates manager in Ubuntu- announced the release of the third alpha version of Ubuntu 10.10, internally known as “Maverick Meerkat”. Maverick Meerkat alpha 3 will become Ubuntu 10.10 in October 10.

It is interesting to devote some time to the Maverick blueprint list to know the details in the feature development. For a detailed analysis of Ubuntu’s Maverick Meerkat release cycle, have a look at at this post.

Let’s go through new features in this alpha 3 release. From the visual point of view, there aren’t too many changes since alpha 2. The most important interface changes were introduced to Unity. Most of the development focused on Ubuntu Netbook Edition.

Ubuntu Desktop got some improvements to the Sound Indicator, Ubuntu Software Center and that’s about it while Unity in Ubuntu Netbook Edition got some major changes, there is also a new Indicator DateTime. An important decision is that Ubuntu 10.10 will ship with Firefox 3.6 and Ubuntu Netbook Edition won’t have Chromium by default after all (it will also ship Firefox 3.6). Also, Ubuntu 10.10 will have a new font that is already available for testing (you will need a Launchpad account).

One of the most innovative part of this alpha released is OneConf. You should know that the first version of OneConf has been released. It is available in the default software repositories. OneConf can be installed as usual via the Synaptic Package Manager. It allows you to synchronize the applications installed on your Ubuntu desktops, laptops or netbook machines, via the Ubuntu One service. After the installation, OneConf can be found in the File menu of the Ubuntu Software Center application and it is entitled “Inventory on Ubuntu One“.
