A few more details have emerged about the next Linux Mint release.

Clement Lefebvre shared this morning via the Linux Mint blog that the upcoming 17.1 release is codenamed Rebecca. The Rebecca codename is a break of tradition as the name isn't starting with a Q as would be expected with Linux Mint 17 being codenamed Qiana, but they switched over to R due to the number of interesting names beginning with Q.

Linux Mint 17.1 shares the same base as Linux Mint 17, which in turn is derived from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS -- as now Mint is only using Ubuntu LTS releases. Linux Mint 17.1 is slated to ship with a new update manager, color scheme improvements, and other improvements.
