I tried downloading it earlier today but the internet connection was only operating at snail speed so I had to abort.

offgridguy,

Have you tried again?

There is often a mad rush as soon as a new version is announced.

Yesterday it took 10 minutes to download 1.8GB with my 37 Mbps broadband speed from HEAnet in Ireland.

That is fast. My network is wifi only, so it does fluctuate a lot. Generally 1.6 gig
would be from 30-45 minutes.
I haven't tried again (yet).
Edit; I am looking forward to it though, there seems to be a solution
for the wifi problem I was having with the beta version.

For anyone wanting to run Linux Mint 18 using the KDE or Xfce desktops (as officially incorporated by Linux Mint), these versions are usually released a couple of months after the MATE/Cinnamon versions.

I am now up and running with Mint 18, very nice. Certainly in keeping with their goal
of a distro where everything works, out of the box.

Used the mint upgrade last night on a system running the "full disk" encryption - LVM on top of LUKS. Actually isn't full disk, /boot and EFI partitions are unencrypted, but that's what they call it.

Ran into the libsane-common issue mentioned by several people in Clems blog, but eventually managed to get everything installed (Cinnamon crashed as well). Not a good look for a naive user I would have thought, but it is all up and functional. Got sick to death of replying to "do you want to proceed" messages.

"Fullish disk encryption" doesn't quite sound the same though. ;-)
