The Linux Mint team is working on polishing the desktop experience for their users. In the project's monthly newsletter, a number of plans were presented, including polishing the look of icons on HiDPI screens and polishing the system tray: "We also looked at Gtk.StatusIcon, which is the technology used by the system tray icons. They're not only blurry in HiDPI, they have a significant number of problems: They were designed with 16px icons in mind. They are rendered by the application, not by the applet. They rely on obsolete technology such as Gtk.Plug and Gtk.Socket which won't be around in the future or compatible with what's coming next (GTK4, Wayland etc.). This is something that isn't supported by GNOME and which we're lucky to still have in GTK3. Without exaggeration I think it's quite a miracle we even managed to have this in Cinnamon." The newsletter also mentions Compulab is working on a computer that ships with Linux Mint called the MintBox 3. The new MintBox will likely be released later this year.
