Linux Mint users received a very early Christmas present in September 2022 when it was announced that Linux Mint 21.1, codenamed "Vera," would arrive around the 2022 holiday season.

Linux Mint, a customized Ubuntu version will come with a raft of new features when it launches around Christmas 2022, according to a Linux Mint newsletter by team leader Clement Lefebvre. Lefebvre thanked the developers and donors to the project. It's not clear exactly which version 21.1 will be based on, but given that this is a point release, it will likely be based on Ubuntu 22.04 "Jammy Jellyfish" released earlier in 2022, since the existing Linux Mint 21 is based on that version.
