With this month’s Ubuntu / Debian-based Linux Mint development news, there are two points to be aware of.
First, Linux Mint is finally packing Chromium. Linux Mint previously offered Chromium when Ubuntu offered it as a Debian package before migrating to Chromium Snaps. In the meantime, the Debian upstream packaging for Chrome is often out of date. So Linux Mint is now packaging Google’s open source Chromium web browser for users who are interested in it, instead of the official Google Chrome package or using Firefox.
After gathering user feedback last month, Linux Mint has also started developing its own IPTV player. They started working on it and this IPTV player is called Hypnotix. They haven’t determined yet whether it will be part of Linux Mint in the future or how much time will be devoted to the effort.
The Hypnotix prototype can be downloaded as a Debian package. Hypnotix currently relies on the FreeIPTV content provider to play various Internet TV channels through the application.
