From there, Linux Mint followed its own codebase, building each release from its previous one, but continued to use the package repositories from the latest Ubuntu release. This resulted in making the base between the two systems almost identical, guaranteeing full compatibility between the two distributions rather than having Mint become a fork. In , Linux Mint adopted the same release cycle as Ubuntu and dropped its minor version number before releasing version 5 "Elyssa".
The same year, in an effort to increase the compatibility between the two systems, Linux Mint decided to abandon its code-base and changed the way it built its releases. Starting with Linux Mint 6 "Felicia", each release was now completely based on the latest Ubuntu release, built directly from it, and timed for approximately one month after the corresponding Ubuntu release, usually in May or November. Unlike the other Ubuntu-based editions Ubuntu Mint , LMDE was originally a rolling release based directly on Debian and was not tied to Ubuntu packages or its release schedule.
On 20 February , the Linux Mint website was breached by unknown hackers, who briefly replaced download links for a version of Linux Mint with a modified version that contained malware. The hackers also breached the database of the website's user forum. Every version of Linux Mint is given a version number and, until the Initially, there were two Linux Mint releases per year.
Following the release of Linux Mint 5 in , every fourth release was labeled a long-term support LTS version, [ citation needed ] indicating that it was supported with updates for longer than traditional releases. Versions 5 and 9 had three years of support, and all LTS versions following received five years of support.
On May 31, , with the release of Linux Mint 17,  the Linux Mint team adopted a new release strategy. Starting with the release of Mint 17, all future versions were planned to use a LTS version of Ubuntu as a base, until In addition, Mint Linux Mint does not communicate specific release dates as new versions are published "when ready", meaning that they can be released early when the distribution is ahead of schedule or late when critical bugs are found.
The team has stated that the Linux Mint 19 beta will be released in the first week of June and the final stable Linux Mint 19 release has been planned for the end of June Linux Mint primarily uses free and open-source software , making exceptions for some proprietary software, such as plug-ins and codecs that provide Adobe Flash , MP3 , and DVD playback. Additional software that is not installed by default can be downloaded using the package manager.
Linux Mint allows networking ports to be closed using its firewall , with customized port selection available. Linux Mint actively develops software for its operating system. Most of the development is done in Python and the source code is available on GitHub. It was released as an add-on for Linux Mint 12 and available as a default desktop environment since Linux Mint The operating system could then be removed, as with other Windows software, using the Windows Control Panel.
This method requires no partitioning of the hard drive. It is only useful for Windows users, and is not meant for permanent installations because it incurs a slight performance loss. UTF-8 , the default character encoding , supports a variety of non- Roman scripts. Linux Mint has multiple editions that are based upon Ubuntu , with various desktop environments available. Linux Mint also has an edition based upon Debian. As of Linux Mint 13, there are two main editions of Linux Mint developed by the core development team and using Ubuntu as a base.
Linux Mint also develops an additional version that features the Xfce desktop environment by default, but has generally had secondary priority and is usually released somewhat later than the two main editions. The distribution provided an OEM version for manufacturers to use;   however, this version was discontinued with the release of v18 Sarah in order to reduce the amount of ISO images that needed to be maintained.
The distribution provided a "No Codecs" version for magazines, companies, and distributors in the United States, Japan, and countries where the legislation allows patents to apply to software and distribution of restricted technologies may require the acquisition of 3rd party licenses;    however, this version was discontinued with release of v18 Sarah.
Users now have the option whether or not to install multimedia codecs during the installation; additionally, multimedia codecs can also be installed via a link on the Mint Welcome Screen any time after the installation.
Support Linux kernel 4. Avoid system hangs on busy machines due to vcache deallocation failures. Clear nvldbentry before sending on the wire - CVE Use crypt for commands where spoofing could be a risk - CVE Clear pioctl data interchange buffer before use - CVE Merge security patches from Debian git master LP: That kernel modification has been backported to 3.
This leaves us roughly equivalent to the forthcoming 1. They generally resulted only in strange failures later on. It was assigned after the release was uploaded.
Fix use of uninitialized memory in the host object in the fileserver. This can cause crashes in old fileservers prior to 1. Merge security patches from Debian Squeeze: Fix potential buffer overflow in the fileserver. Merge security patches from Debian Wheezy: CVE - Fix a potential DoS attack against Rx servers by avoiding suspending the listener thread when delaying connection abort messages. Thanks to Andreas Beckmann for finding the problem and solution.

Write locks always fail and read locks always succeed. If the file doesn't end in a newline, read will still succeed and set the variable, but will exit with a non-zero status. This would abort configuration of the package without a useful error message. We're no longer replacing the embedded jQuery, pending a better fix in the Doxygen packaging. Thanks to Anders Kaseorg for the patch, cherry-picked from upstream.
This should be droppable once Debian integrates the fix. This requires deploying rxkad. Once this is deployed on servers, DES will only be used for the session key. Properly support the -encrypt option in vos, including with -localauth. Debian now always uses dependency-based boot ordering. Buffer overflows which could cause a serverside denial of service. Thanks to Anders Kaseorg. Fix fileserver buffer overflow when parsing client-supplied ACL entries and protect against client parsing of bad ACL entries.

Thanks to Colin Watson for help with debugging and to Seth Arnold for identifying the failure. However, openafs-client will still have to be installed for the openafs-fileserver init script, which uses the bos binary, so will still be pulled in by dependencies.
