    I'm glad they're moving to the HWE kernels line.

    They will use anything, except a proper display server like Wayland on a modern desktop environment like KDE Plasma or Gnome!

    So happy they chose to package their own Thunderbird. Snap is crap.
    Another example of why I love the guys behind Mint.

    Better being late to the party than never going to the party at all.

    avif is still also good for animations, it will be jpegxl 9/10 times, only really small super high fidelity animations in JXL will beat out avif. In then end you cant beat a video codec for video.

    I've been using Mint for about a year now and love it as a my default Os, and am eager to try out version 22 when it's released. Pipewire and JPEG-XL are just icing on the cake.

    Same here. It's good to see that's one extra step I no longer need to do when installing Linux Mint.

    A lot of people do. That includes me. I'll get JPEG-XL into every distribution and software if it's the last thing I do.

    I use it pretty much globally. On android I use a fork of the simple mobile tools gallery (now fossify gallery) https://github.com/oupson/Jxl-Gallery but other then that, every app I use supports JXL so I convert everything to JXL on a scheduled basis​. It winds up saving a large chunk of space. I save around 30~ percent vs PNGs and transcoding jpegs saves me about 15% on them. so it adds up to a lot of you store a lot of images.

    Is this an april fools joke?
