New Mint 19 iso's being tested?

Post by Mr. B » Wed Jul 18, 2018 2:38 pm

Hi all,

I just checked https://community.linuxmint.com/iso to see if the LMDE 3 iso's were being tested at this point. To my surprize is saw new stable Mint 19 iso's being tested instead...? Anyone knows what's going on?

As noted in the comments there:
These new ISO ship a handful of bug fixes which were released since the stable release. The main reason for the respin though is the new ubuntu-system-adjustments. Its postinst was broken in the stable release and now that a new Grub package hit the bionic repositories, it broke the EFI installation in online mode.

For this reason we're respinning the 64-bit ISO images.
This is related to the global announcement JeremyB posted on this Installing Linux Mint 19 from ISO, please read, EFI installs only
