You can forget about the Release Candidate (RC) the Linux Meant team rolled out to the public a week ago. That's because the operating system graduated out of RC status. On Wednesday, May 23rd, Lead Linux Mint Developer Clem Lefebvre announced that the final version of Linux Mint 13 codename Maya has been released.

Four versions of Linux Mint 13 are available for download: Linux Mint 13 MATE Edition without codecs, Linux Mint 13 MATE with codecs, Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon without codecs, and Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon with codecs.
Linux Mint 13 is also available in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors: MATE 32 and 64-bit, Cinnamon 32-and 64bit.


If you’re already on the Release Candidate of Linux Mint 13, to upgrade to the final version you need only apply any level 1 and level 2 updates presented in the Update Manager. If you’re on an older version of Linux Mint, instructions on how to upgrade to v. 13 are available here. And if you’re not on Linux Mint at all, or you want to perform a fresh install, download links for Linux Mint 13 are available on the official Mint website and on the official Mint blog.

Before you rush off to upgrade or to get Linux Mint 13, take the time to see what new features its has to offer:
  • MATE 1.2 desktop – it’s stable, works on all computers, is easy to use, and puts the focus on productivity.
  • Cinnamon 1.4 desktop – it’s sleek, modern, built on rapid technologies, and has an active community that creates many new themes and applets.
  • MDM – this is a new Display Manager that offers more features than any other currently available Display Manager.
  • Artwork – the latest Mint-X and Mint-Z themes, better support for GTK3, a collection of beautiful photographs to use for the background.
  • Search – the default search engine is Yahoo! because it is the 2nd biggest search engine in the world and the first major search engine to share revenue with Linux Mint.
