Summary:

* October was an exciting month for us, with all the attention culminating around a single event, the release of Linux Mint 10 RC. The new artwork was well received within the community and we noted people were excited by the new features. I’d like to thank all the translators who are participating in translating it at the moment, and also all the people who raised bug reports. We’ve fixed a lot of bugs since the RC release, and even though nothing critical was found, the feedback gave us the opportunity to bring additional yet significant improvements. The stable release of Linux Mint 10 should be ready early this November and we’re hoping it will be among the most popular desktops we’ve ever released.
* We’re traditionally hit by the gap between Ubuntu and Linux Mint in the release cycle, when there’s a new Ubuntu system out there, and no up-to-date Linux Mint released yet. Surprisingly this year, we managed to close this gap to a minimum with an early RC release and a longer delay between RC and stable. Our user base didn’t fluctuate by 10% like it usually does and our income is actually up this month.
* Last month, I expressed worries about the low amount in donations compared to 2009. I don’t really know how to express the gratitude I feel towards the community right now, but it’s huge… you reacted more than we ever hoped. Almost twice as many people donated and we managed to collect more this month than we ever did before: $5283. This is a fantastic sign of support. It’s not only inspiring and motivating, it’s also extremely comforting going forwards and it shows us the level of support we’re having from you. Very few projects out there manage to get this far without corporate backing and focus on commercial activities. Thanks to you, we don’t have to worry about that, we’re at the top, fully focused on the distribution itself, and it’s all community-funded. It’s hard to describe how special this is and I feel really thankful and privileged by this.
* The blog was moved to its own dedicated server in the USA. As a result both the website and the blog are now more responsive.
* Coming up, we’re getting close to a stable release of Linux Mint 10 early November, a second LMDE release with the same features and an improved installer in December. Work also started on the other editions and we’ll have more news about them in the coming days.
