LinuxMint 19 Tara released and ready to download
New version of LinuxMint has been released on 29th June 2018. Version number is 19 and code name is ‘Tara’.  This version is based on Ubuntu 18.04 and published in three flavor. LinuxMint took 3 major desktop environment Cinnamon, Mate and Xfce to give end user the various experience. In my case I always like Mate and Xfce. I personally use Xfce and recommend Mate for my friends. I don’t want to say anything about Cinnamon environment. That is also popular to many Linux user. I have not any saying about Cinnamon, I just wanted to limited my download. So, I choose only Mate and Xfce. This is a LTS (Long term support) release which will be supported until 2023. It contain many new features to make users desktop experience more comfortable.

It is now at the center of Linux Mint's update strategy and communication.
Using the timeshift feature user can go back in time and restore their computer to the last functional system snapshot. If anything breaks, timeshift can go back to the previous snapshot which bring a good condition to perfom the system smoothly. Actually it simplifies the maintenance of the system.
