Take a look at the root actions built into this release. I have found this to be a valuable feature. Boo has done a good job with stability and feature sets in this release. KDE 4.2.4 seems to have the right combination of speed, stability and an attractive default appearance. I think this is one of the best KDE 4 based systems out there. This is the first time in years I have used KDE on my main machine!

I found it here : http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/linuxmint.com/testing/ but the ISO is 4 days old !
Maybe there is another link ? I am not sure !

That is the correct link. The iso had to be tested before being approved as a release candidate.

Two questions please:

1. Will Gloria KDE CE contain OpenOffice 3.1 or Firefox 3.5?
2. Will it be an easy upgrade from the RC to the final version?

Thanks.

I finally had the time to install it on my laptop and playing around with it now. I'm no expert in testing but compared to all the other KDE 4 distro's out there that i have tried, i also have to say this one is the best out there. It's fast, has KDE 4.2.4, it's stable, i can go on but the list would become too long. I'm sure that everyone agrees when i say: "This Linux Mint KDE CE edition is Kubuntu done right!"

When the final is going to be released it will be my main OS, until then i'll keep using this KDE CE RC. Everybody involved to make this release rock as it should: Thank you very much. I love it!!!

No, OpenOffice 3.01 and Firefox 3.0.11.

2. Will it be an easy upgrade from the RC to the final version?


I believe so. There should not be much difference between the RC and the final.

Hi,

Can anyone please tell me when the full version of Mint 7 KDE will be released? I looked through this thread and the other one made specifically for this question but could not see a date. Approximate time frame is more than enough.

I would look through the previous schedules to figure it out but only 1 previous KDE edition has come out and that too quite recently, so I don't know if I can go by that? Ubuntu/Kubuntu's RC period was about a week, so will it be the same here or will it be more like Mint 7 GNOME's one month period (please correct me if I am wrong). :D

It's just that I am going to try Mint for the first time with this release and would rather wait it out than fiddle with Mint 6 KDE.

I'm new to Linux Mint. I was wondering if you have multiple release candidates or if you just use the one until all the bugs seem to be fixed? Or does it depend on how serious the bugs are? Or are there multiple RC being released?

Generally there is one release candidate, the community tests it out and the bugs are fixed. When the final release comes out an upgrade path from the release candidate to the final is made available.

Interesting. I find that odd because I would have assumed that you want to make another release candidate with all the bug fixes to see that it solved all the problems on all hardware and to find other problems the first may have distracted one from. That's why I was wondering. Because it seemed to me to be as you say. Thanks for the information.

Can i just keep on using the release candidate and will it update to the final? I haven't found any other upgrade instructions yet. I'm kind of hesitating to redownload 1.1 gb :-)
