The next release of Linux Mint, version 18.1, is expected to arrive by the end of 2016. The upcoming release will likely feature the MATE 1.16 and Cinnamon 3.2 desktop environments. One new feature which will appear in Linux Mint 18.1 is improved language support: "Support for languages was also improved. Language pack detection now checks for spell checkers, fonts and a variety of other packages. The selection and installation of input methods was also completely redesigned. You now choose which language you're interested in, and this installs support for typing in this language and recommends methods to select." A list of new features and accompanying screen shots can be found on the Linux Mint blog.
