Wonder what else has changed. Not asking for advice. Just running up the flag pole as FYI to the community.
All releases have "Release Notes" and "Announcements". Also, highly recommend reading Clem's LM blog
Go to Download
> All Versions > Select 19, then select your Desktop & Arch, and you'll find the links to "Releases Notes" and "Announcements". At the bottom, there is a link to "Ubuntu release notes". This won't cover everything, but it's a good start
LM 19 is based on Ubuntu 18.04
. If there is some software you use a lot, you could search for it and see what version will be installed on 18.04, thus LM 19. I was kind of disappointed to see gimp 2.8 and not 2.10. At least libreoffice is 6.0.3, although 6.0.4 is out.
I'm on 17.3 now, so I get to learn all about systemd, journald, etc. I've been keeping up to date on gimp, libreoffice, and some other utilities and development stuff. The biggest change will be desktop. I'm currently using KDE, going to try Mate. I may go to debian or suse, if I can't break from kde. I like the rolling release of Arch, but I've had major problems with it. The LTS is a little to long for me.
I see you already looked at the Release Notes. You need to go one link further, "What's new in Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon".
