Clement Lefebvre has announced that the beta snapshot of the upcoming Linux Mint 20, code name “Ulyana”, is now ready for testing. This major new release is based on Ubuntu 20.04 and, as usual, comes in three separate desktop editions with Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce. It will be supported with bug fixes and security updates for five years. “Linux Mint 20 is a long-term support release which will be supported until 2025. It comes with updated software and brings refinements and many new features to make your desktop even more comfortable to use.” One of the interesting new features of Linux Mint 20 is a new application called Warpinator: “The star of the show in Linux Mint 20 is a new application called Warpinator. Ten years ago, Linux Mint 6 featured a tool called ‘Giver’ which could share files across the local network. Without any server or configuration, computers would automatically see each others and you could simply drag and drop files from one to another. When the Giver project was discontinued it had to be removed from Linux Mint and we’ve been missing that functionality ever since. Warpinator is a re-implementation of Giver.” Read the release announcements for the Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce editions for further information, screenshots and relevant links.
