The team led by Mint main developer Clement Lefebvre has released its second interim release, codenamed Victoria, a good year after Linux Mint 21. Like all versions of the 21 series, it is based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and comes in three editions that differ in the desktop environment they contain: Cinnamon, MATE or Xfce. The Mint team has updated Xfce to version 4.18 in the Victoria release, MATE remains unchanged at version 1.26. The biggest changes come from Cinnamon 5.8, which is also being developed by Lefebvre and his Mint collaborators.
The team has worked on many details on the desktop. The main menu can now be resized by clicking on its edge with the mouse and dragging it wider. You can choose styles in one go for applications, mouse pointers, icons and the desktop if you wish.
Anyone using the new Cinnamon with a touchpad, touch screen or tablet can control it using gestures, for example to move windows, switch desktops or operate a media player. The Muffin window manager is customized to work with the Touchégg service.
