* mintCast released 2 episodes: http://mintcast.org/

Summary:

* May was marked by the release of Linux Mint 9. There was a significant increase in traffic on the website (about 25%) and the user base grew by 6%. As with every release, we’re expecting the numbers to drop a little bit next month.
* We received more donations than ever before. 202 people supported us this month, for a total of $5,117. Whether this was in appreciation of the latest release or in reaction to the poor results the project got in April, it’s really appreciated. It is often said that Linux Mint doesn’t benefit from corporate funding, but we’ve got such a strong community. There aren’t many projects like ours with that level of support from their community. This is really inspiring. Many thanks to everyone involved in helping us.
* The overall income went up by 24%. May 2010 was the best month for the project since its creation in 2006.
* June 2010 should see the releases of two additional editions: LXDE and KDE.
