In their monthly newsletter, the Linux Mint team discussed some of the new improvements coming to the Linux Mint distribution. One of the new key features offers better handling of kernels in the update manager. The update manager will now provide more information about software updates and how they relate to stability and regressions, allowing the user to select an update policy. "The Update Manager was already configurable, but it wasn't clear how to configure it, and why. In particular, the concepts of regressions, stability and security weren't clearly explained and users had to acquire these online. To raise awareness around these concepts and show more information, a new screen welcomes users to their update manager and asks them to select an update policy." Touchpad support has also been improved in the MATE and Cinnamon desktop environments.
