The release candidate to Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" that will officially be released in the near future has arrived.

There's MATE and Cinnamon spins of the Linux Mint 17 OS that's officially out today though the ISOs have been on the mirror for a few days. Linux Mint 17, built atop Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, features improvements to its update and driver manager, log-in screen enhancements, uses Cinnamon 2.2, better systemd / logind support, better HiDPI support, and all of the very latest open-source packages as found in last month's release of Ubuntu 14.04.

More details on the Linux Mint "Qiana" Release Candidate can be found via the Linux Mint Blog while the official release is expected to be out shortly. Right now I happen to be in the process of doing a desktop performance comparison with Linux Mint 17 -- those results should be out early next week.
