Updating kernel in linux mint

The "Software Sources" configuration tool received a few UI and usability improvements.A warning was added against the use of the "backport" and "romeo" components of the Linux Mint repositories.With that in mind, it’s important to raise the user’s awareness about these tools but without getting in his/her way, and it’s also important not to confuse the user by activating them by accident.The HUD is now less intrusive and should only appear if you drag a window really close to the edge.The development team will use this section to give you relevant information about new kernels, what they fix, what they break, so you can decide which kernel is right for you.The Driver Manager is now able to install drivers without a connection to the Internet.

These new roles enable Cinnamon to dynamically show relevant systray icons when applets are removed, or to dynamically hide them when applets are added. you’ll see the Network Manager GTK systray icon appear.Power management and screensaver settings were completely revamped in 2.2 with a clear separation between what relates to the Lock Screen and what belongs to Power Management.Brightness settings were also improved, missing settings added and the overall presentation was reviewed.MDM was refined, and it received new features and important bug fixes.

Multi-monitor support was improved: MDM is also now able to detect your session and your language and it preselects them by default. If you find yourself unable to log in, you can press CTRL ALT F1 to log in the console, and type "mdm-recovery".

Cinnamon’s snapping functionality and workspace management are pretty unique.
