Linux Mint Debian edition to switch from snapshot cycle to Debian stable package base
The team behind Linux Mint has decided to let go of the current snapshot cycle in the Debian edition for the Linux distribution and instead switch over to a Debian stable package base. The current Linux Mint editions are based on Ubuntu and the team is most likely to stick to that for at least a couple of years. The team recently launched the latest iteration of Linux Mint, a.k.a. ‘Qiana’. Both the Cinnamon and Mate versions are now available for download with the KDE and XFCE versions expected to come out soon. Meanwhile, it has been announced that the next three Linux Mint releases would also, in all probability, be based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
