The Linux Mint team has been hard at work recently, preparing updated media for both the project's main editions (which are based on Ubuntu) and Linux Mint Debian Edition. Some of the features Mint users can expect to see include better Bluetooth support and Bluetooth file transfers through the Blueberry utility. "OBEX file transfers are now supported out of the box, so you can send files very easily over Bluetooth to your computer from any remote device. An option was added also so you can change the Bluetooth name of your computer. That name usually defaults to your hostname or to mint-0 and many people don't know how to change it via the command line. Last but not least, in addition to its cross-desktop system tray, Blueberry now provides a Cinnamon applet which uses symbolic icons and looks similar to other status applets, such as the power, sound or network applets. When this applet is present, the tray icon is hidden." Mint's Xed text editor is gaining the ability to sort lines of text as well as quickly change the size of text in the editor. Mint's Xplayer video player is also getting some new features, including a more compact interface and short-cut keys for handing subtitles and language support. Further details can be found in this Mint Monthly News post.
