Release Notes

The purpose of the Light Edition is to bring a version of Linux Mint which doesn't contain:
  • proprietary software
  • patented technologies
  • support for restricted formats
In some countries where the legislation allows software patents to be enforced the Light Edition provides a way for users to legally download Linux Mint.

The following components are not present in this Light Edition:
  • Macromedia Flash 
  • Support for encrypted DVDs
  • Windows codecs
  • Support for restricted multimedia formats
  • Unrar
  • Sun Java (replaced by GIJ)
This edition includes all other technologies from Cassandra and among them: mintInstall.
  • The Linux Mint Software Portal will soon contain .mint files for Light Edition users to be able to add codecs and multimedia support in one simple click.
