LTS version 8.04.1

Post by oomingmak » Mon Jul 07, 2008 6:02 pm

Are there any plans to release a revised version of Mint based on Ubuntu 8.04.1?

I understand that the point upgrade added a lot of fixes, and so this new version would save you from having to download them all.

I can't seem to find any current mention of Mint's plans in this regard (apart from this old post, which received no answer) so I thought I'd ask here.

I'm pretty sure we already have it. If you have Firefox 3.0 final and linux kernel 24.19, you have it. If you're like me, you have to get the kernel via Synaptic, it refused to show up in Mint Update.

I don't. I'm still on Daryna 4.0.

I am asking about this because I don't want to burn a CD that will mean any future installs I make using it will require huge downloads to get up to date. I'd rather these updates be included on the install CD in the first place.

If there is not going to be any update to Linux Mint until Felicia, then it makes no difference when I download and burn the ISO. However, if an update is likely then I'll hold off for a while (because I'm not in a particular rush to get rid of Daryna).

Other threads on this forum say that the KDE version of Mint is updated to use the 8.04.1 codebase, so that's why I'm asking about the Gnome version.

I'll take the lack of response as a "no" then.

Last I heard, Clem was waiting for Flash 10 final to be released before updating the Main Edition. Please keep in mind that Clem has been working on the 64 bit Edition and this is probably occupying much of his time.
