Linux Mint developers have revealed that Linux Mint 19 will be codenamed Tara. We are expecting to get the final version of Mint 19 in May or June 2018, as it will be based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The operating system will be supported till 2023.

The most important change announced today is that Linux Mint 19.x will use GTK 3.22. GTK 3.22 is a major stable release for GTK3. From here, the theming engine and the APIs are stable. This is a great milestone for GTK3. It also means Linux Mint 19.x (which will become our main development platform) will use the same version of GTK as LMDE 3, and distributions which use components created by the Linux Mint project, such as Fedora, Arch Linux, etc. This should ease development and increase the quality of these components outside of Linux Mint.

Linux Mint is well known for its incredible, high quality themes and wallpapers, and look and a focus on usability. From all the existing Linux distros, it has the most beautiful appearance no matter which desktop environment you use but its flagship Cinnamon environment is particularly lovely. It is very interesting to see what developers will offer in version 19.
