Linux Mint 10 KDE RC Is Out
Article by George Norman
On 10 Feb 2011
Last week the Linux Mint team announced that the 32-bit and 64-bit Linux Mint 10 KDE builds passed testing, but because they featured KDE 4.5.5 at a time when KDE 4.6 was already rolled out, they had to be scrapped. Linux Mint developer Clem Lefebvre announced at the time that the decision to upgrade to KDE 4.6 was made and Linux Mint 10 KDE builds would have to go through another cycle of testing.

Earlier this week, on Monday the 7th of February to be more precise, Clem Lefebvre announced that work on Linux Mint 10 KDE with KDE 4.6 is going along smoothly – so smoothly that the operating system would be rolled out as a Release Candidate (RC) the same week.


The next day, on the 8th, the same Clem Lefebvre announced that Linux Mint 10 KDE RC was rolled out to the public.

“The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 10 KDE RC. We look forward to receiving your feedback. Thank you for using Linux Mint and have a lot of fun testing the release candidate!” announced Lefebvre.

At a glance, the new features in Linux Mint 10 KDE RC are:
  • KDE 4.6
  • Lancelot KDE Menu
  • The Software Manager uses application icons and better organizes items to offer you a nicer browsing experience.
  • You can right click a package and tell the Update Manager to ignore updates for that package.
  • You can view the size of your selected updates in the Update Manager.
  • Several improvements have been made to the Upload Manager: the system tray icon is launched automatically at startup if services are defined; the File Uploader merged with the Upload Manager; a connection can be tested while defining it by pressing the appropriately named Check connection button; uploads can run in the background; uploads can be cancelled; the upload dialogs are more Firefox-like visually, they measure the upload speed and calculate an ETA.
  • Various system improvements.
