The Linux Mint team has published its monthly newsletter which outlines changes coming to the distribution. One of the key changes involves Blueman taking over from Blueberry due to changes in the way GNOME's Bluetooth support is handled. "Starting with version 42 GNOME Bluetooth is no longer compatible with Blueberry. Blueberry would need to undergo significant changes to work with it. There is also frustration upstream from the GNOME Bluetooth development team who simply does not want to have users from other desktops than GNOME and so Blueberry will probably get discontinued. Blueman on the other hand welcomes users from all desktop environments. It does not rely on GNOME Bluetooth. It’s a GTK frontend for the Bluez bluetooth stack." The newsletter also reports the Mint developers will be taking over maintenance of the Timeshift as its original author, Tony George, has decided to focus on other projects.
