Linux Mint 22 is set to arrive this month, and they have already used the beta version to fix over 50 bugs

On July 1st, Clem Lefebvre launched the beta of the upcoming version of his operating system. Few details were provided, but that was to be expected. More information was shared in this month’s newsletter, which confirms, among other things, that Linux Mint 22 is expected to arrive in July. However, this is not set in stone, and everything must go smoothly for the projected timeline to be met.

“It is difficult to pinpoint the release date of the stable version. We plan to release it this month, but this BETA phase will last longer than the traditional two weeks,” Clem said. It is likely that the extended beta phase is related to the foundation of Linux Mint 22, a solid and forward-looking base. With so many changes and improvements, numerous bugs have appeared, some of them significant, such as security changes in AppArmor causing applications to close unexpectedly.

“Linux Mint 22 seems to be a solid foundation for the future, but there are many bugs in this BETA. Some of the issues are major (security changes in AppArmor causing application crashes, hardware acceleration reading libraries causing Xorg to crash, problems with Flatpak/mintinstall… etc.), so we are very grateful to receive this feedback before the stable release. We are fixing them little by little and sending updates as we go. It’s exciting; the version improves every day, but it takes time,” explains the Mint project leader.

This month’s newsletter also served to thank those who tested the beta version and reported bugs. The Mint team received a total of 109 reports, 53 of which are still open. Mathematics tells us that 56 bugs have been fixed. Less related to the operating system, they also welcomed a new sponsor this month: IPv6.

The exact arrival date of Linux Mint 22 has not been confirmed. When it happens, we will write an article with all the news about the next version of this superb Linux distribution.
