First things to do in Linux Mint 17 Mate

Linux Mint 17 was the first release of the 17.x series and it opens a new era for our project and a very important cycle for us. During the next 2 years, popular applications will be backported to 17.x and the team will continue to bring improvements and newer desktop environments with each new release. Security updates will also be served until 2019. Whereas the team would normally focus on the next release, this time around the next release is 17.1 and it shares the exact same base. So although 17.1 will be a distinct release and users will opt-in to upgrade to it, that upgrade path will be trivial and both releases will be fully compatible and represent the same development target. Never in the past did Linux Mint invest so much focus in its base. For the release of Linux Mint 17, attention to detail spanned to new areas and the scope of the project got a little bigger… more upstream components were patched and bugs were tackled immediately without waiting for the fixes to be applied by Debian or Ubuntu. When the base was only used for 6 months, it didn’t always make sense to invest too much into it and fixing something often meant making sure it was being tackled in the next base to come. Using the base for 2+ years means we can improve future releases while better supporting existing ones and our level of expectation can raise to a point where part of what was considered upstream before now also falls under our own responsibility.
