Days after the release of the KDE spin of Linux Mint 17.1 and more than one month since the MATE and Cinnamon Linux Mint 17.1 spins debuted, the group of Linux Mint 17.1 releases has ended with the availability of the Xfce version.

The Sunday release of Linux Mint 17.1 "Rebecca" Xfce Edition ships with the updated Xfce packages (where available as there hasn't been many Xfce package releases in recent time), out-of-the-box support for Compiz, and the various other package updates and improvements shared across the other Linux Mint 17.1 editions. For those not wishing to use the Compiz compositing window manager, Xfce's Xfwm window manager remains available.

Linux Mint 17.1 Xfce can be explored more via LinuxMint.com. Linux Mint 17.1 remains based off Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to allow for providing package updates until 2019.
