Clement Lefebvre has announced the release of Linux Mint
6 "KDE" edition: "On
behalf of the team I am thrilled to announce the release of Linux Mint
6 KDE. Based on Kubuntu 8.10 'Intrepid Ibex', Linux kernel 2.6.27, KDE
4.2.0 and X.Org 7.4, Linux Mint 6 'Felicia' KDE Community edition comes
with a brand new software manager, FTP support in mintUpload, proxy
support and history of updates in mintUpdate, mint4win (a Linux Mint
installer for Microsoft Windows), and a lot of other improvements.
Linux Mint now uses its own LSB information and no longer identifies
itself to applications as Ubuntu. This can potentially break
compatibility with some third-party tools. Meta packages were
introduced within the repositories to reflect the default selection of
packages for the various Linux Mint editions."
