News and summary:

The Summer months are traditionally quiet but things are going very well for Linux Mint. Version 13 was a huge success and all planned editions (Cinnamon, MATE, KDE and Xfce) were successfully released. The quality of these 4 desktops allowed us to provide users with solid experiences and we can now focus on developing solutions and improving the desktop again.
In LMDE, Update Pack 5 reached “incoming” and should hit “latest” by the end of August. The mirror strategy was changed to face the upcoming demand in bandwidth and new servers will be purchased or rented by our project to make sure the release goes as smooth as possible.
MATE 1.4 was released and Cinnamon is getting close to a 1.6 release.
Development started on Linux Mint 14. The development team is looking into bringing improved “face” support to MDM, as well as a new “driver manager” (in replacement to Jockey which will be discontinued upstream) and improvements in the Software Manager.
Within the Cinnamon project, the team’s been working hard on bringing all the features people asked for in 1.4, including configurable panel heights, Cinnamon 2D, Alt-tab preview and outline modes, workspace names and OSD, improved keyboard navigation, Expo grid view, improved configuration tool and menu editor, improved logging, new Scale, Expo, Notifications and Brightness applets and a huge number of bug fixes. Versions from the current unstable 1.5 branch should hit the romeo part of the Linux Mint 13 and LMDE repositories shortly.
Announcing the mintBox was a fantastic experience. We were thrilled with the quality of the product and the sales were good. In association with CompuLab, we’ll soon extend the range to include new models, a low-cost unit featuring an SSD drive and a high-end unit based on the Intel i7 processor.
Finally, I’d like to thank all the donors and sponsors who help fund Linux Mint. Your contributions and financial help are empowering us and thanks to you we can achieve our goals without worrying about commercial aspects. Many thanks to all of you.
