According to information published on the Linux Mint website, Linux Mint 20 Beta is currently in the final review phase prior to release. If the audit does not find a BUG that affects the use of the case, the Linux Mint 20 stable version will be released in two weeks’ time.
According to an official blog post on June 1, the team will make final adjustments during the two-week test. In particular, community members and tasters are invited to test and adjust the details of the system’s color matching based on the feedback collected. The team says it has now grouped the different colors and is expected to restore some of the new colors to previous versions.
Another promising change for Linux Mint 20 is that snapd can be installed. Last week, citingmedia NeoWin, the Mint team blasted Canonical, accusing it of setting thresholds for some snapd installations, contrary to previous commitments. To do this, Linux Mint 20 indicates to the user that it recommends installing snapd if they want to rely on software.
If all goes according to plan, a beta release will be released in the next few days, and the official version may be released in late June or early July. Linux Mint 20 is based on Ubuntu 20.04 and is supported until April 2025.
