The table below gives you the code names of Linux Mint versions together with the code name of the underlying Ubuntu version.

  • All code names are female names ending with an a.

  • Code names follow the alphabetical order. Using the version number as an index gives you the first letter of the codename (with an offset of +1 since version 17).

  • Since version 17 Linux Mint is based on LTS versions (Long Term Support) of Ubuntu.

  • New versions of Linux Mint are typically released in May/June and November/December.

  • Also see code names of Ubuntu releases.
