While we prepare our GNU/Linux distributions for the anticipated GNOME 3.16 desktop environment, which will be unveiled next Wednesday, on March 25, 2015, the GNOME development team still updates some of the core components of the current stable release of the desktop, GNOME 3.14.
This is the third service release to Neptune 4 and comes with improvements, bug fixes and updates. This includes Chromium in version 41, VLC in version 2.2, LibreOffice 4.3.3 as well as Icedove 31.5 and many more. The foundation of this release is represented by the current Debian 7.8 ('Wheezy'). This new version also offers Updates for Kdenlive which bring in better codec support as well as a fix for the localization of video effects. Kernel 3.16.3 was updated with fixes for Btrfs and nouveau. There is also better Btrfs support with Grub 2.0.2 Beta 2. The problem with Persistent Creator in the live media not being able to format the persistency file on a non german localization has been solved. Smartphones and media players are now better supported with mtp library version 1.1.8.

But no one feels safe putting up their sensitive data over there. As recent hacks shows that how safe our data is. In 2014 many celebrities photos were hacked from cloud storages and posted on social networking sites. So why not encrypt data before upload it on cloud storage to increase security.
The team is proud to announce the release of LMDE 2 "Betsy" MATE RC. LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) is a very exciting distribution, targeted at experienced users, which provides the same environment as Linux Mint but uses Debian as its package base, instead of Ubuntu.
