* A design contest was organized to give Mint 10 a default background.

Summary:

* September was both exciting and disappointing. All Mint 9 editions were released and so was the new Debian-based edition. This allowed us to shift our focus towards the development of Linux Mint 10 and to implement many of the new features coming with this future release. Financially, September was supposed to show growth and dynamism after a depressing month of August. Though the overall income was up 4% thanks to a slight increase in the user base and advertising income, the donations were as low as last month… 33% lower than they were in September last year. This is the third consecutive month with less donations than in 2009. It’s worrying. I’d like to thank all the people who donated money to our project, and invite everybody else to consider doing so.
* The release of Linux Mint Debian was very important for our project, and with the release of the last Linux Mint 9 edition (Fluxbox), the focus was placed on the upcoming Linux Mint 10. The menu and the upload manager received many improvements, some of which were previewed here on the blog. Additional features and enhancements were also implemented for the welcome screen, the update manager, the software manager, the underlying system, and a new theme was set for the upcoming release.
