Any word...

Post by Reorx »

...regarding the impending arrival of LMDE 3??? Debian Stretch (9.0) went "Full Freeze" in early February 2017. LMDE 2 (Betsy) was released several weeks before Debian Jessie (8.0). I'm a bit surprised to have not seen even the beginnings of a Beta...

I chatted with Clem about a month or two ago and (IIRC) he said that we wouldn't see LMDE 3 until after the release of Debian 9. I don't know if that means not even a beta 'till then. :(

I think the plan is to release first LM 18.2 and then LMDE3. But I may be wrong. So I would target July/August for LMDE3.
The craziest of us may want to try to update to Stretch before that. Let's see. :mrgreen:

Install LMDE2 in virtualbox and change the Debian repos to stretch ;)

A much newer kernel for those with new hardware. Systemd. A new GTK version which will make you more compatible with Mint-Y. And of course an updated version of almost all your software. :mrgreen:
And as usual, the number is higher therefore it's better. :mrgreen:

Not always! Older hardware prefer lower numbers (specially the kernel). :wink:
