Linux Mint 17.3 “Rosa” Cinnamon Update:

New features:

  • Software repositories are mirrored (i.e. duplicated on many servers) all over the world. The main goal of the Software Sources configuration tool is to make it easy to find the best available mirror for you; one that is:
    • Reliable and fully up to date
    • Fast and responsive
  • The Update Manager now also performs more checks than before.
  • Drivers in Driver Manager are now sorted by status and the Driver Manager now indicates if drivers are Open Source or not
  • The Driver Manager features both UI and under-the-hood improvements.
  • The Driver Manager now also loads much faster and detects drivers in the background.
  • When a Broadcom chipset is detected, along with the recommended Broadcom STA drivers, the Driver Manager now also lists B43 installers
