Not yet. But I expect Mint 12 to be here within a day: http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/linuxmint.com/testing/
Tonight it'll appear at most other mirrors, and I think it'll appear on the Linux Mint website tomorrow, along with a torrent.

With all those people downloading the speed has even decreased to 50-60 kB/s right now. I guess it's even worse for American or Asian users who are much further away from this Irish server.

Running the Live-USB now... It is fast. Clem and company have done a great job so far! It makes using Gnome3/Gnome Shell almost bearable. That comment is in no way a dig on Linux Mint, Clem or the devs. I'm just still having a hard time with Gome3/Shell. As stupid as it sounds, I really like and miss the Compiz options and desktop customization. That said, I will keep testing it. Maybe I will warm up to it. Again, great job! It is 10x better than Unity and "vanilla" Gnome Shell.

Hmmm...trying to log into MATE just kicks me back to login screen. :cry: That is after full install. Anyone else have this?

It's not yet released on the website and the first bug is already found...

My download failed, ISO image gave errors and md5sum didn't match, so I had to start downloading again. So I haven't yet tried out Mint 12.

No trouble with the install itself. I'm using the 32bit DVD version. I'm using the default desktop for the time being until the solution for logging into MATE is found.

Edit: Just looked at the iso testing page on the community site. One of the testers has the same bug of inability to log into MATE desktop. I guess the fix will come with the final release (or in updates for us RC users).
