Re: Notification of new release?

A one-time notification like you just showed would be a huge help to those of us that use this incredible OS as a daily tool to get things done and do not have time to visit the main site or blog daily. Hoping devs consider this.

Notification of new release?

When a new release happens does a notifier show up in update manager automatically?

Or, do you have to manually seek out when a new release is ready by going to edit tab in update manager and hitting "install Linux Mint 19.2" or some variation of those words?

Thanks.

I have a dual boot with Windows 10 and using "Betsy".

I have to hit F12 to enter into my boot menu to launch LMDE2.

Good time to install LMDE?

I prefer using a debian base instead of ubuntu. Is now a good time to install LMDE or best to wait until Betsy is released? If Install LMDE1 will the upgrade path (changing repos) when Betsy is released roll smoothly or create issues?

Thanks. I thought I would ask before installing.
