Linux Mint Devs Work on Splitting Cinnamon into Multiple Processes, Improvements

With the Linux Mint 19.1 “Tessa” out the door last month, the development team lead by Clement Lefebvre will now concentrate their efforts on improving various parts of the operating system like the live ISO images, which will get revamped boot and splash screens with possible support for language and keymap selections.

Another area that will get quite a lot of improvements is the Cinnamon desktop environment as the team is currently working on speeding up the loading time by optimizing two internal components, DocInfo and Appsys, as well as boosting the performance of the application menu and simplifying its use by replacing the “All applications” category with another one that lists recently used apps, as well as newly installed ones.
