Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya Beta Cinnamon and Mate for VirtualBox and VMware

Linux Mint project recently announced the Beta version of their upcoming release Cinnamon and Mate versions of Linux Mint 18.2 codenamed “Sonya” based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS. “The Update Manager received many improvements. It still has the same mission and tackles the same issues as before (keeping your computer safe, providing bug fixes and protecting you from regressions) but it presents things slightly differently. Policies and level definitions were refined to better filter updates depending on their level of impact on the operating system and without worrying about their origin. Most updates are now level 2. Application updates which do not impact the OS are level 1. Toolkits and desktop environments or libraries which affect multiple applications are level 3. Kernels and sensitive system updates are level 4. Level 5 is extremely rare and not used by default. This level is dedicated to flagging dangerous or broken updates. The Update Manager insists on staging and reviewing updates depending on their level. The notions of security, bug fixes, backports, updates and software regressions are central and these core concepts are better explained. A large help section now ships with the Update Manager and goes much more in details than before…” You can read release announcement for Cinnamon and Mate.
