Earlier this month we were reporting that the Linux Mint team rolled out the Release Candidate (RC) of Linux Mint 13 Xfce. Today we are glad to announce that Linux Mint 14 Xfce sans the RC tag has been released – or to put it in other words, you can forget about Linux Mint 13 Xfce RC because the stable version has been released.

The one to announce the release of Linux Mint 13 “Maya” Xfce was Lead Linux Mint Developer Clem Lefebvre.
“The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 13 Xfce,” he said on Saturday, July 21st. “To upgrade from the RC release, simply apply any level 1 and 2 updates (if any) available in the Update Manager,” Lefebvre added.


Download links for the 32 and 64-bit editions of the Linux Mint 13 Xfce operating system are available here. Please note that in order to run the OS your system must have at least 256MB of RAM, 5GB of free disk space, and a graphics card capable of 800x600 resolution.

If you’re not familiar with what’s new with Linux Mint 13 Xfce, here’s a quick look at the operating system’s new features:
  • Upstream components – Xfce 4.10, Ubuntu 12.04, Linux 3.2.
  • Xfce – the 4.10 edition of this lightweight desktop environment comes with several improvements. A complete look at the edition’s new features is available here.
  • MDM – this is a new Display Manager that offers more features than any other currently available Display Manager.
  • mintMenu and MATE applets – the xfapplet plugin that let Xfce users run Gnome applets within the Xfce panel has been updated; it supports MATE applets now. mintMenu, which has been improved to support Thunar, is perhaps the most popular MATE applets one could run.
  • Artwork – the latest Mint-X and Mint-Z themes are featured, there’s a collection of photographs from an Irish artist that can be used for the background, and support for GTK3 has been improved.
  • Yahoo! – the default search engine has been changed to Yahoo! because it’s the first major search engine to share revenue with Linux Mint.
