The Linux Mint team have published their monthly newsletter and taken the opportunity to highlight changes coming to the next version of their distribution. Two of the notable changes include improved accessibility for changing keyboard layouts and tap-to-click is enabled for touchpads on the login screen. "System layouts defined in /etc/default/keyboard are listed first for easy access. Below that a sub-menu lists all supported layouts. Touchpad support was also improved. Tap-to-click is detected and enabled automatically in the login screen. The layout used for Onboard, the on-screen keyboard is configurable. The keyboard navigation was improved. The arrow keys can be used to edit the password which is being typed. A revealer icon appears when the password is clicked or edited. This revealer can be used to toggle the visibility of the password. Among other small improvements Slick-greeter also received support Wayland sessions, LXQt/Pademelon badges and a scrollable session list." Additional information can be found in the project's newsletter.
