What’s New in Cinnamon 6.2: A Comprehensive Guide to the Latest Features

The Cinnamon 6.2 desktop environment achieved stable status today as the Linux Mint developers released the first tarball in the 6.2 series, set to be the default in the upcoming Linux Mint 22 “Wilma” release.

Cinnamon 6.2 appears to be a smaller update compared to Cinnamon 6.0, introducing only a few changes like greeter badges for Cinnamon sessions, the option to show the search bar by default in the app chooser dialog, new screen lock delay settings of 5 and 10 seconds, and enhanced support for Flatpak apps.

This version also introduces a new XApp called GNOME Online Accounts GTK, which simplifies setting up all your online accounts compared to the GTK 4-based GNOME Online Accounts app from GNOME 46. The GNOME Online Accounts GTK ensures Cinnamon users continue to use the Online Accounts feature seamlessly.

Cinnamon 6.2 additionally supports configuring bindings for Spices, allows for displaying battery pending charge/discharge states in Power Management, includes an interface for xdg portal requests, introduces a new action icon for the Mint-X theme, and ports several components to Clutter animations.

It also brings various fixes to improve support for NVIDIA users so that Online Accounts no longer breaks, as well as to the Power and Sound applets, and removes the Adwaita and HighContrast themes from the list of available themes.

Among other noteworthy changes, Cinnamon 6.2 updates the User applet to allow the displaying of profile pictures on the panel, improves the workspace switcher, adds Shift + click actions settings to the Cornerbar applet, fixes the desktop peek function, and adds a Science category to the menu.

As mentioned before, Cinnamon 6.2 will be the default desktop environment of the upcoming Linux Mint 22 distribution, which is expected to see the light of day in the coming months based on the Ubuntu 24.04 LTS (Noble Numbat) operating system series and powered by Linux kernel 6.8.
