The Linux Mint team has released last night the KDE Edition of their successful Linux operating system, Linux Mint 3.0 (codename Cassandra). The KDE Edition was created by and for the Linux Mint community and it’s based on Bianca-KDE but compatible with all Feisty repositories. Highlights of this release include:

  • Linux kernel 2.6.20-15
  • KDE 3.5.6
  • Beryl 0.2.1 with Beryl-Manager

This release is not as minty as the main edition but it is mintier than Bianca KDE. More Mint applications will be ported to KDE for the Celena KDE edition. This desktop-ready KDE Mint has all the usual Minty goodness for the web and media applications. I have made the choice to make the Mint KDE CE edition more pro-desktop and to mirror the main edition closer with respect to the main applications. So what does this mean? Some applications have been swapped for their more mainstream counterparts.” – says Jamie Birse, maintainer of Linux Mint KDE Edition.

  • OpenOffice 2.2.0
