Linux Mint 18.3 launched the other day with both Cinnamon and MATE editions, which were previously available for download from the project's main FTP mirror. And now, the upgrade path is already open for Linux Mint 18.2 users, allowing you to upgrade your installation to the latest Linux Mint 18.3 release.

However, the upgrade path appears to be open only for Linux Mint 18.2 "Sonya" Cinnamon and MATE users, as Xfce and KDE users will have to wait until later this year for the Linux Mint 18.3 "Sylvia" Xfce and KDE editions to be released.

  • AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 vs. RADV/RadeonSI Radeon Linux Gaming Performance
    With today's AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 Linux driver release alongside the Radeon Software Adrenalin Driver for Windows users, it's significant in a few ways.
