Linux Mint 18.1 Serena Beta Images Released for VirtualBox and VMware

Linux Mint project announced the new version of Linux Mint 18.1 codenamed “Serena” Beta version available in Cinnamon and Mate editions. It features a new screen saver which allows the user to control the media player while the screen is locked. In the Cinnamon edition of Linux Mint it is possible to enable sounds to accompany on-screen notifications and the Xplayer video player can now blank monitors not in use by the player window: “If you have more than one monitor, you can now press the ‘Blank Other Monitors’ button when playing a video in full screen. Your video will continue to play and all your other monitors will turn black. The blanking can be toggled back and forth and automatically stops if you leave full screen or close the player. This feature is also available if you plug an external monitor to a laptop, so it allows you to blank the external monitor, or to blank the laptop itself without having to close the lid.” You can read release announcement here for Cinnamon and Mate.
