Yep, that was one of the changes. Here's the details as to why.According to distro they changed their bluetooth manager to blueman, i was having trouble with the bluetooth which is why i switched over to Ubuntu.
Linux Mint 21 will ship with Blueman as its default Bluetooth manager. Mint's lead developer cites issues with the current gnome-bluetooth backend.www.omgubuntu.co.uk
With mint you need to change the repositories to the new Addresses to do the upgrade. They try to let the smoke settle so to speak from the final release and a few days later give instruction on the upgrade procedure. With Mint 21 there will be a new upgrade tool also.I would assume you can still just do a "dist-upgrade" from the command-line with any of the Ubuntu based distributions?
Linux Mint’s next release, based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, is around the corner. We should expect a release candidate later in the month of May. In the last monthly blog post, Clem Lefebvre (Linux Mint founder) revealed that Linux Mint 21, codenamed “Vanessa,” will be the next upgradenews.itsfoss.com
It all depends on your hardware. I think it would be worthwhile.Hi, two questions please:
1. Is it 'worth' going from Mint 20 to Mint 21?
2. CAN I go directly from Mint 20 to Mint 21? (via download or separate Drive?)
