Great News. But a silly question. I'm running the Beta version and have been updating it as I go. Am I OK or should I go with the Finished Product?

Hello, leohaywire.

You must have missed it in the release announcement, linked to by Clem above. Upgrading from LM 20 beta to LM 20 (final release) is as trivial as can be:

And thus, you already have the non-beta LM 20. :)

Yeah I posted the question just before Mint 20 dropped. I thought that was the case and I thank you, Clem and the team for a fantastic product.....Leo

what does clean upgrade and clean update mean if you format the drive? that is a fresh install not an upgrade or update. you need to give people clear instructions not a link to your site, i could not find a way to upgrade from 19.3 on your page. so how do i do it? how do i upgrade from 19.3 to the next Mint 20 ?

1. I don't need to do anything at all. I'm a volunteer.

2. Clean upgrade = fresh install.

:lol: good answer i respect volunteers. but here's a clear answer
Upgrade instructions:

but clean upgrade still does not mean fresh install.

Where will the upgrade instructions appear on the forum? In Release and Announcements section again?
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

I'd imagine Releases & Announcements would have a link to a blog entry.

I just read the tips of how to upgrade from 19.3 to 20, and to tell you the truth - I am not crazy about. It basically stated that I will have to wipe all and start over. Backing up my photos,documents and downloads is not much of the issue, but how do I back up the virtualbox with win7 in it and all the installed software. Then come the issue of reinstalling Mint downloaded software. my Mint is running fine and I am not in a hurry. I will wait till you find safe way to upgrade ( if that possible).
