The Linux Mint developers have published a new testing release, Linux Mint 20.1 Beta, which introduces a number of new features. There is a new IPTV application, called Hypnotix, performance improvements for the Cinnamon desktop, and there is a web app manager which helps integrate web apps and into the desktop. This development release also includes way to mark files as favourites for quick access later. “Time and time again we need to access the same files. Up until Linux Mint 20.1 we would remember where they were stored and slowly get to them using the file manager, bookmark their containing folder to get to them faster, look in the recently opened document section, hoping to find them in there, clutter our desktop with direct links… Well, there’s a much better way now! If you’re working on a file and you know you access it often, right-click it and select ‘Add to Favorites’. You’ll see a little star pop up in your panel. That’s where all favorite files are, just one click away.” Further information can be found in the project’s release announcements for each of the distribution’s three editions - (Cinnamon, MATE, and Xfce).
