Eagle eyed Peppermint fans may have noticed there is a new release of the Peppermint 7 64bit ISO (Peppermint-7-20170321-amd64.iso). We'd like to explain that this is purely an installation media (ISO) maintenance release to fix an inherited bug that caused a GRUB installation error on some UEFI systems with Secureboot. The new ISO does contain all updates to date but is otherwise unchanged. The GRUB installation error only affected fresh installations so there is absolutely no need (or reason) for anyone already running Peppermint 7 to reinstall .. this was solely a bugfix for the installation media. If on the other hand you're about to do a fresh install on a UEFI system, please use the new ISO. Thanks for your continued support.
Team Peppermint.

Come in number 3, your time is up!

A very important reminder for all users of Peppermint 3. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS will cease to receive security updates from 28 April 2017. Peppermint 3 is built on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. It will also no longer receive any further security updates from this date. From this date, Peppermint 3 will be officially retired.

If you're still using Peppermint 3, now is the time to seriously consider upgrading to Peppermint 7 "Respin": https://peppermintos.com/. For Peppermint 3 users with non-pae CPUs, please contact the Peppermint Community Forum: https://forum.peppermintos.com/ for a compatibility assessment and assistance. Many thanks and happy Pepperminting.

Team Peppermint are happy to to announce that both the 32-bit and 64-bit Peppermint 7 Respin ISOs have been repaired. They have been rebuilt and tested by a our team of experienced volunteers. The bug in the 16.04 version of APT (1.2.15) that caused the installer to crash for a small number of people, has been resolved. The new installation ISOs are now available for download from our main website: https://peppermintos.com/. Both the Direct and Torrent Downloads are active. If you encounter any problems with the installation, please let us know through our Community Forum: http://forum.peppermintos.com/. Team Peppermint thanks everyone for their patience.

A big thank you goes out to our team of volunteer testers. You did a great job guys.

As of January 2017, there'll be a New Year's gift from Google. They're to begin labelling HTTP pages that transmit passwords or ask for credit card details as "Not Secure". They're doing this to discourage the use of websites not employing encryption. Thank you Google. http://thehackernews.com/2016/09/chrome-https-security.html

Team Peppermint advise that all users update their systems to kernel 4.4.0-36 now.

You can update by clicking the "shield" icon in the system tray, then click the "Refresh" button, then once refreshed, click the "Install Updates" button .. once finished, REBOOT.

Another method is via the command line by running these commands in sequence:

sudo apt-get update

Followed by:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Once the upgrade has completed, it's VERY IMPORTANT you reboot your machine(s). Once rebooted run:

uname -a

This is to check you're now running the 4.4.0-36 kernel.

This kernel fixes the 8 known vulnerabilities listed here:
