Based on Ubuntu 12.10, Linux Mint 14.1 code-name Nadia Released. Linux Mint 14.1 Released with major bugs fixes. Users that have already installed Linux Mint 14.0, don't need to re install. The new version will be provided automatically, through the standard update process. You can know more about Linux Mint 14.1 by checking official release announcement of Linux Mint 14.1.

Improvement in Linux Mint 14.1

  • High CPU usage, low performance on Intel GPU: This was caused by a race condition between Plymouth and Xorg and affected owners of Intel cards in particular.This issue was fixed in MDM 1.0.8 which is available as an update in Maya backports and in Nadia and which is installed by default on the new ISOs.
  • No DNS resolution, Internet not working in virtual machine: Linux Mint now uses OpenDNS as a fallback for DNS resolution. If the system fails to connect to a DNS server, the resolution is done via OpenDNS. This guarantees better out of the box connectivity especially in virtual machines.
  • Installer fails to install grub-efi: A bug was fixed and the installer now successfully installs the grub-efi packages in EFI installations. You still need to disable Secure Boot and depending on the implementation of EFI on your system you might have to specify the location of the EFI boot file (EFI/BOOT/grubx64.efi).

You can download Linux Mint 14.1 from HERE (Download Mint 14.1 ) as all the ISO images for Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” were updated and labelled “14.1″

Enjoy :)
