Summary:

* LMDE was successfully released and the focus switched back to the other editions and the upcoming Linux Mint 11.
* The KDE edition was tested but postponed in order to include the newly released KDE 4.6.
* The LXDE edition is being tested.
* Discussions are ongoing within the development team to decide whether the Fluxbox edition is to switch base from Ubuntu to LMDE.
* Due to personal circumstances affecting its maintainer, the Xfce edition has been delayed.
* Development started on Linux Mint 11. The two major features being discussed at the moment are the ability to backup and restore system snapshots, and a new network protocol which would allow Mint computers to be aware of each box connected to the local network in real time, and give users the ability to see who’s connected, to chat with them and exchange files.
* Major upstream changes also mean the team will need to dedicate some time to fix things that are about to be broken… namely, changes with pygtk, gconf, aptd and Gnome 3.
* We’re also keeping an eye on the Software Center, which thanks to a meeting we weren’t invited to, is about to become a Linux standard and gain the functionalities currently available in our Software Manager. It’s too soon to say whether we’ll continue to improve Software Manager or switch to Software Center. Upstream projects and other distributions aren’t interested in re-using our application and it makes little sense for us to compete with Ubuntu, especially if they’re happy to implement our ideas. If the upcoming Software Center is on par feature-wise with the Software Manager, we might switch to it in Linux Mint 11. We’re a bit bitter with the way this was done and the way we’re being ignored, but this is a good thing for the desktop and Linux users. In the end, whether it’s our solution or theirs, we’re happy to use what’s best.
* Financially we’re doing very good. Our income is down 1.1% after what was our best month since the start of the project. Our sponsorships reached over $1,000/month. Our user base grew in the last few months and we now have the servers to cope with the increased traffic.
