In their monthly newsletter, the Linux Mint team reported that Linux Mint 17.x has reached the end of its supported life. The newsletter links to a tutorial which guides readers through testing newer versions of the distribution on their hardware and upgrading to a supported release.
The newsletter also mentions work being done to make setting up network shares easier, using the nemo-share utility. Now nemo-share will help the user set up firewall rules that will allow Samba to work, check directory permissions and warn the user about potential problems if the user's home directory is encrypted.
