Linux Mint 20.3 Now Available

Jan 10, 2022

That latest release of Linux Mint is now available for general use and offers a polished, but less Mint-y theme.

Users of the popular Linux Mint distribution can celebrate the new year with a new release. The developers have made the latest version, 20.3 available for download. This latest iteration is based on Ubuntu 20.04.5 LTS and although it doesn’t have any game-changing new features, it does offer a lot of subtle UI tweaks and a very helpful document manager app.

As for the polish, the default Mint theme doesn’t lean so much on the color green and includes larger title bars, bigger controls, and rounded corners. A number of the default apps also default to a dark theme.

Some of the app improvements include the calendar tool showing events from multiple sources, some tweaks to the Nemo file manager (including the ability to rename a moved or copied file to avoid overwriting a duplicate), new styling for the run dialog, major updates to the Notes app (which includes a new search function), Hypnotic (Mint’s internet TV app) now includes a channel search, and the Xed text editor makes it possible to switch between tabs with the [Ctrl]+[tab] keyboard shortcut.

There’s also the new Thingy app, which is a document manager that provides quick access to favorite and frequently opened documents. Thingy also keeps track of reading progress, so when you re-open a document it’ll start where you left off.

To find out everything that’s in the new version, make sure to check out the Linux Mint 20.3 release notes.
