New Linux Mint Logo Revealed Alongside Further Updates 

Linux Mint is in the middle of getting a subtle facelift that concerns both the official website and the logo, and a few days ago, Clem Lefebvre provided us with a sneak peek at how everything could look when this redesign is finalized.

Linux Mint is in the middle of getting a subtle facelift that concerns both the official website and the logo, and a few days ago, Clem Lefebvre provided us with a sneak peek at how everything could look when this redesign is finalized.

 

First and foremost, it’s worth knowing that not everything is set in stone, and some of the elements that you see here could still change.

The logo itself, for example, is still in the experimental stage, and the head of the project explains that it is specifically designed from the very beginning to resolve all the struggles with the current version, including the broken scaling model.

“We’ve been working around these issues for a while now. In previous releases we shipped with flat, semi-flat and symbolic versions of the current logo (your application menu logo in 19.1 is an example of this) but we can’t address all the issues without removing that border in the shape of a leaf,” he explained.Under the hood improvementsFurthermore, Lefebvre also discussed the performance improvements that have recently been implemented in Cinnamon and which were announced the previous month.

For example, both DocInfo and AppSys were reviewed and simplified, as noted in the official announcement, while the window manager should be much faster now thanks to reduced input lag. The application menu applet itself runs twice as fast as before, Lefebvre notes.

The Update Manager has also received particular attention this time, with new capabilities such as the automatic removal of packages that are related to old kernels and which your system obviously no longer needs. And last but not least, mintreport, also known as System Reports, features a refined UI with a XApp sidebar and a new page for system information.

For the time being, just don’t hold your breath for the next version of Linux Mint, as the 19.2 release should take place in June.
