The latest refresh of the lightweight Linux distro comes based on top of the Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS point release and, somewhat notably, provides both 32-bit and 64-bit install images.
Newer versions of Xorg, the Linux kernel, and various security fixes are included in the Peppermint 10 Respin (20191210). It also features the following key changes:
- New ‘Cursor Resizer’ setting
- New ‘Web Browser Manager’ tool to install/remove common browsers
- Reverts to an early build of the pulseadio-equalizer tool
- Arc Colour Themes added, and Arc-Red-Dark set as system default.
- Various new icons
- p7zip-full installed by default
- Various new single-site browsers
You can learn more about these improvements, as well as more details behind the release, in the Peppermint respin announcement on the project’s official website.
Download Peppermint 10 Respin
Want to try this distro out? You can download Peppermint 10 Respin as 32-bit and 64-bit
.iso images directly from the project website:
Flash these bootable images to a USB stick and you can “try” the OS out on your hardware without installing anything. If you like what you see, you can use the same image to install the complete system.
Already running Peppermint 10? You don’t need to panic. This “resin” is about providing up-to-date install (
.iso) images to new users, to ease the number of post-install updates that are required.
So if you already run Peppermint 10 OS and you have installed all updates issued since you installed it, you’re good to go!
Is Peppermint 11 planned?
Peppermint 11 will be based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and is anticipated for release in early summer of 2020.
