The Linux Mint team is also working on strengthening the Warpinator app for better security.

Linux Mint project leader Clement Lefebvre writes today in the monthly newsletter of the project about some of the major improvements that have been implemented for the upcoming Linux Mint 21.2 release. 

In Linux Mint 21.2 “Victoria”, the devs promise better support for Flatpak apps, as well as for apps using GNOME’s libadwaita library by implementing support for the xdg-desktop-portal desktop integration portal and frontend service for Flatpak and other similar containment frameworks.

This change will make Flatpak and libadwaita-based apps work seamlessly on all supported desktop environments, including Cinnamon, Xfce, and MATE, even if they’re usually written only for the GNOME desktop environment, and support features like dark mode and screenshots.

As you probably already know if you’re a Linux Mint user, even if it’s based on Ubuntu, Linux Mint doesn’t support its Snap software packaging and deployment system developed by Canonical for the obvious reasons we all know about.
