LMDE4 and Cinnamon 4.6+????

Post by Jon Spoonamore »

Quick question.... Will LMDE4 stick with Cinnamon 4.4 or will we get updates to newer versions as time/development allows????

LMDE4 has been really successful for my desktop needs. I left Mint-Land back in 2016 because of Ubuntu's Negative Directions. And now.... I am glad to be able to use Debian 10 Buster with Mint's Superior Desktop Polish!!!! Good Job Mint Team!!!!!

Cinnamon 4.6 on LMDE4?

Post by sandandmercury »

Hi,
Will LMDE 4 ever update to Cinnamon 4.6 as Mint 20 did, or it is meant to be "stable" and remain on 4.4? Debian repos are still on Cinnamon 3.8 by the way, which is why I'm asking.
Thanks!

That will be great, thanks! I mean, if by "new features" they refer to Cinnamon. They say that "before we move on to the next development cycle, we’ll take two weeks to work on the upgrade path from Linux Mint 19.3 and the port of the new features in LMDE 4".

Unless I'm reading it wrong, I think "the port of the new features in LMDE 4" is interpreted the other way around, ie the team will continue to port the new features introduced in LMDE 4 to LM 20. I base that assumption on the April blog, "Work continues on Linux Mint 20 “Ulyana” which is planned for June this year. Some of the features which were introduced in LMDE 4 were added to it..."

It's amazing what confusion a misplaced preposition ("in" instead of "from" or "to") can do to the meaning of a simple sentence.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

I don't think you are, that is my understanding of it too.

Good to know, I've just run Timeshift for another reason (evidently timely) and will wait for the Britisher local mirrors I have selected to catch up ;)
