Clement Lefebvre has announced the release of Linux Mint 20.2, the latest update of the popular desktop-oriented distribution with a choice of Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce desktops. The new version, based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, brings various improvements to Update Manager and Notification Centre, as well as new applications, such as Bulk File Renamer and Sticky Notes: “The Update Manager now supports Cinnamon spice updates (i.e. updates for applets, desklets, themes and extensions). Although they’re technically different than APT updates, they are presented to you in a very similar manner. You can see the same kind of information for them, and enjoy the same features as you did already, such as the ability to blacklist a particular spice or a version of a spice. You can also automate spice updates. In automatic mode spices are upgraded shortly after you log in and the desktop environment then gets refreshed.” See the release announcement (Cinnamon, MATE, Xfce), release notes (Cinnamon, MATE, Xfce) and what’s new pages (Cinnamon, MATE, Xfce) for more information.
