Linux Mint Version 19.3 Is Coming on December 25

Few weeks earlier, Linux Mint developers revealed that they were planning on releasing version 19.3 by the end of the year. While the developers have been pretty quiet since then, we now know that Linux Mint 19.3 will be released on December 25th. If you don’t want to wait that long, you will be glad to know that the beta version will be released later on December 3.
In an official blog post, Clement Lefebvre wrote, “You probably know we’re aiming for a Christmas release this year. All 3 editions of Linux Mint 19.3 passed QA and we’ll be announcing the BETA release on Tuesday! We’re really excited about this release. The 19.x series is two years old and feels very polished. There are exciting features in 19.3 we haven’t talked about on the blog yet. The software selection changed and three new apps are coming in. The artwork is new and makes 19.3 feel really fresh.”
“We also have tray support for system reports. That’s something we think you’ll enjoy, and it’s helps us communicate with you better. It’s yet another way for us to document issues, workarounds and solutions and to target that information in a precise way, when it’s relevant to people who need it. This is new in 19.3, but it’s also something we’ll backport… so when the 19.3 stable release is officially announced, you won’t just find out about it here on this blog, you’ll also be notified from within Linux Mint, ” Clement added.
While its not always practical to test out beta versions of operating system on a production machine, Linus Mint has been pretty reliable over the years. As a result, if you cannot wait until the official release on December 25, you might want to install the beta of version 19.3 on Tuesday.
