Mint Team Rushes out 14.1 Update

Filed under
Linux

The Linux Mint team today announced an update to the recently released 14.0 "Nadia." There were a few showstoppers that squeaked by quality control that needed to be addressed. Fortunately, current users of 14.0 can just run the updater.

14.1 was released today due to several issues. One of the more serious was a "race condition between Plymouth and Xorg and affected owners of Intel cards in particular. Rather than using the "intel" driver, Xorg was randomly using "modesetting" or "fbdev" and the desktop was rendered by the CPU rather than the GPU using LLVMPIPE software rendering."

Leftovers: Software

  • gimp-paint-studio addon soon on Gnome Software Center
    Image speaks itself. gimp-paint-studio package just got an metainfo needed for Gnome Software Center as add-on for Gimp based on related Richard Hughes' blog. The updated package will be shortly available in Rawhide and also in Fedora 21 updates-testing repository. It will not be included for Fedora 20 due to the preview release of Gnome Software lacking addons support. Next step will be contacting upstream adding that metainfo. Hopefully other add-ons maintainers for applications such as Inkscape and Blender will do the same to bring a richful experiences to users.
  • CD Audio Grabbers - Graphical Based
    CD audio grabbers are designed to extract ("rip") the raw digital audio (in a format commonly called CDDA) from a compact disc to a file or other output. This type of software enables a user to encode the digital audio into a variety of formats, and download and upload disc info from freedb, an internet compact disc database.
