Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 “Cindy” Cinnamon Enters Beta, Here’s What’s New

With Linux Mint 19 “Tara” out the door earlier this month, the Linux Mint team now concentrate all of their efforts on the Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 “Cindy” distribution, which is based on the latest stable Debian GNU/Linux operating system instead of Ubuntu like the main Linux Mint OS, and a beta release is now ready for public testing with the Cinnamon desktop environment. Highlights of the Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 “Cindy” Cinnamon Beta release include all the latest security and software updates from the Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” repositories as of July 31, 2018, the latest Cinnamon 3.8 desktop environment, as well as all the updated in-house built tools that are also available in the Linux Mint 19 “Tara” operating system.
