I talked to Fred yesterday; he has the new builds up and was having a good feeling this one would pass the tests and the RC could be released soon.

Thats welcome news.

I am hoping there is a test case for checking Clock time works fine. Many of used faced issueswhile incorrect time was shown and even corrections were getting reset on boot.

Yes, I notice that so far there are no failed cases and just one warning. Looks like this could be the one.

Thanks for the Heads up. I can wait as Mint 14 KDE 4.10.3 is running snappy and problem free.

But my aim is to eventually get to 4.12? last LTS? while they work on porting over to wayland and Qt5?
But found KDE Mint 14 does it for me and quite happy if I was stuck for awhile with it.
But always interested in better and more proficient use of resources,ram and hardware driver improvements.

first impression 8)
second impression:
Although it was selected as default in Ubuntu 13.04, the 3.8.0-19 kernel used in Linux Mint 15 didn’t work as well as we’d have expected. Many people were unable to get the sound working through HDMI and some even experienced kernel panics and system freezes. A few workarounds were identified during the RC but the cause of the problem wasn’t clear to us so we spent time looking into this… we’ll vulgarize our findings on the Segfault blog and we’re likely to upgrade the kernel to 3.8.0-25 (up-to-date with upstream 3.8.13) in the upcoming KDE and Xfce editions.

My screenshot is up in the June screenshots thread. The only issues I found were in the installation process. Selecting log in automatically didn't "take". Upon reboot it went to the login screen. I had to redo the auto login option in System Settings. The other bug was restarting when installation finished. Once the DVD was ejected, hitting "enter" did not continue the restart. I had to do a hard shutdown with the power button.

Other than those two items, so far it is running like a champ.

With the advent of 3.8, the kernel only reserves resources for 1 of these audio outputs--hdmi or s/pdif--by default. If u want both, u can have them, but u have to make some minor changes to your config. I didn't bother. I simply went into BIOS and disabled hdmi on the one PC that had s/pdif, as I don't use hdmi. I am running kernel 3.8.13 on Linux Mint 14 Xfce on my htpc with s/pdif.
My desktop runs 64-bit Kubuntu 13.04, my htpc runs 64-bit Linux Mint Nadia Xfce, my answering machine runs 64-bit windows 7, and my laptop runs 64-bit Linux Mint Nadia KDE. Each seems suited to its purpose.

As already comment on the subject of Linux Mint 15.... Right now, I'm using Linux Mint 15 KDE RC from a Live DVD. That I can tell you, is really beautiful .... It works wonderfully well on my machine. It takes a lot, but I really wish it was worth it (one really hurts support your time is so short).... It comes with a lot software, the software that most users basic and medium normally need. Brings KDE 4.10.3, Firefox 21 and LibreOffice 4.0.2.2 (the only detail is that the version of LibreOffice that brings not complete, missing some programs, I imagine the effects will not enlarge more image .Iso - among many other programs). Linux Mint 15 KDE its almost perfect !!!!

Was worth waiting.... This RC is almost perfect..... Congratulations Linux Mint Team !!!! I think with the KDE fans are going to like a lot !!!! Congratulations !!!!

Both the KDE and Xfce editions of Linux Mint 15 have been approved for RC: http://community.linuxmint.com/iso. The ISO images will being synced to all the mirror servers, and an announcement post is being prepared by the developers with all the information you need to know (like known issues and workarounds).

If you absolutely need the RC now, and can't wait for the announcement from the developers, you can browse the mirrors http://www.linuxmint.com/mirrors.php. Pick a mirror and look in the testing directory. If the mirror is up to date, you will find the KDE and Xfce ISOs there with a date of 20th or 21st of June.

Note that getting the ISOs before their announcement is risky, and not recommended. As shared by Clem earlier: http://segfault.linuxmint.com/2013/05/g ... -us-a-bit/

There's no time schedule. It's just when the bugs are fixed.
