LMDE new ISOs.. when?

Postby Fesiitis on Sun Feb 17, 2013 7:09 pm

So, is it possible to know the approximate time/date when coming out new ISOs with LMDE? Yes, i know that first ISOs for testing will be released a few days ago, but it would be nice if we know date when comes out next ISOs for testing.

We had this question and the discussion that follows after that a couple of times now. The answer is always the same, they will be ready when they are found to be stable enough to be released after testing them.

The progress can be followed on:

http://community.linuxmint.com/iso


As you can see the last iso's are rejected due some problems we found that need to be fixed first before the new test iso's can be released for... well... testing.

Again, there's no ETA when the RC's will be out.

Now that the ISO's have been approved for RC, can they be downloaded for testing? If so, where?
Thanks

For those really brave souls who are willing to take a chance on an .iso that could be pulled if there is something wrong with it, the Cinnamon and MATE release candidate .iso's are on the mirrors: http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/linuxmint.com/testing/

You might want to check for a mirror closer to you to help keep bandwidth down on the main servers.

The four .iso files identified as 201303 are LMDE.

Thanks tdockery97 :-) I just picked up some extra usb sticks at the store tonight thinking about LMDE Cinnamon. One of the sticks is green, must be fate :-)

Downloaded and installed LMDE Cinnamon 32 bit to a 16 gig usb stick. Very very nice, worth the wait :-) Cinnamon gets better and better, love all the settings and tweaks available now, much more intuitive. Definitely a winner!
Only bad thing with installing was on my netbook the small screen hid most of the buttons on bottom behind the panel during the install, I could barely get to them. On a larger screen probably not an issue. The installer itself looks better, seems to work better. Certainly more polished than earlier versions despite my small screen issue.
I think folks are going to be pleased with these new LMDE spins.
