Team Peppermint are pleased to announce Peppermint 9, the latest iteration of our operating system. Based on the 18.04 LTS (long term support) code base, Peppermint 9 still comes in both 64bit and 32bit flavors so older hardware is still supported. We hope you enjoy using it half as much as we did putting it together.
Peppermint 9 highlights:-
- Qt applications such as VLC now honor the system Gtk theme.
- Gtk overlay scrollbars are now enabled by default, they’re growing on us ;)

- The graphical screenshot utility has switched from pyshot to xfce4-screenshooter.
