First Look at Linux Mint 21.1 Beta with the Cinnamon 5.6 Desktop Environment
Linux Mint 21.1 is slated for release this Christmas, but we don’t have an official date set in stone, so it will be out when it’s ready. For now, all we have is the beta version, which started appearing earlier today through various of Linux Mint’s mirrors around the globe. An official announcement for the beta release will be made by the Linux Mint team when all mirrors are synced with the main download server.
The biggest change in the Linux Mint 21.1 “Vera” release is, of course, the latest and greatest Cinnamon 5.6 desktop environment, which comes with a bunch of new features like a new Corner Bar applet for those who want to bump their productivity, a new setting to set the duration of notifications that appear on your screen, the ability to lock desklets in place, new and improved keyboard navigation, and more.
