The developer published the monthly news of the project for May 2018, announcing that Linux Mint 19 will enter beta stages on Monday, June 4, 2018, when users will be able to download the Linux Mint 19 Beta ISO images with Cinnamon, MATE, and Xfce desktop environments and participate in the beta testing program. The final release of Linux Mint 19 "Tara" is expected at the end of June. Linux Mint 19 "Tara" will be a major release based on the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system, which means that it'll come with numerous new features and improvements. Among some major highlights, Clement Lefebvre mentions the Cinnamon 3.8 desktop environment with a lot of components ported to Python 3, and the MATE 1.20 desktop environment with HiDPI support out-of-the-box.
