Here on the news section of FindMySoft, we’ve taken a keen interest in the development process of the Linux Mint 7 “Gloria” operating system. So far we’ve seen the operating system reach several milestones – we’re just gonna mention the final ones: Linux Mint 7 Final, Linux Mint 7 X64 Final, and last but not least Linux Mint 7 KDE Final. One other Linux Mint 7 distro has reached final status. I am of course talking about Linux Mint 7 XFCE Community Edition – previously in RC1 (Release Candidate 1).

As always, the one to announce this was Lead Linux Mint Developer, Clem Lefebvre: “The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 7 “Gloria” XFCE. The XFCE Community Edition aims to provide a version of Linux Mint which uses the XFCE desktop. A minimum of 3GB of free space and 256MB RAM are needed [for the installation]. For a comfortable experience we recommended to have at least 512MB RAM and 10GB of free space.”


Here is what you can expect to get from Linux Mint 7 XFCE Community Edition (highlights):
  • - Based on Xubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope
  • - Linux kernel 2.6.28, X.Org 7.4, XFCE 4.6
  • - A new window called “Featured applications” displays popular apps that are available for the OS, but have not yet been installed.
  • The mintInstall frontend comes pre-filled with all the data you need to browse and install software.
  • - mintInstall runs in root mode and does not store info on your home folder.
  • - Improved GUI layout: less info is displayed in the main window, the Versions button is now called More Info.
  • mintUpdate improvements: the changelog tab supports Linux Mint packages, mintUpdate displays the download size for each package upgrade, the mintUpdate tray icon no longer blinks.
