The new edition of Linux Mint includes an new welcome screen that sports one-click upgrading to the DVD edition — wrangling with multimedia codecs and DVD functionality is the traditional bane of many Linux installations and this one-click approach is about as simple as it gets.
You can now install applications from your repository right from the main menu without having to dig into the software manager, new installations are automatically highlighted. The search box in the program menu has new search engines integrated into it including easy access to Linux hardware databases and tutorials — perfect for new Linux users who will be inevitably rolling up their sleeves and doing a little tinkering.
For a detailed breakdown, with screenshots, of what’s new in this edition check out the full change log here. Visit the link below to grab a copy of Linux Mint 10 “Julia”.
