"The Linux Mint team has released the final version of Linux
Mint 9 ("Isadora"), based on Ubuntu 10.04. Linux Mint 9 features a
new software manager with 30,000 packages, a new backup tool, and
menu and interface improvements, says the team.
"The Isadora release follows up on Linux Mint 8 ("Helena"),
which released an RC1 GNOME version in November, and a final KDE
release in early February. (Based on Ubuntu 9.10 ("Karmic Koala"),
Linux Mint 8 added improvements such as new OEM installation
features, an option to ignore updates, and "menu places" that can
be configured by users.)"
