Upgrade instructions:

This BETA release might contain critical bugs, please only use it for testing purposes and to help the Linux Mint team fix issues prior to the stable release.
It will be possible to upgrade from this BETA to the stable release.
It will also be possible to upgrade from Linux Mint 19 and 19.1. Upgrade instructions will be published after the stable release of Linux Mint 19.2.

Bug reports:

Bugs in this release should be reported on Github at
Create one issue per bug.
As described in the Linux Mint Troubleshooting Guide, do not report or create issues for observations.
Be as accurate as possible and include any information that might help developers reproduce the issue or understand the cause of the issue:
Bugs we can reproduce, or which cause we understand are usually fixed very easily.
It is important to mention whether a bug happens “always”, or “sometimes”, and what triggers it.
If a bug happens but didn’t happen before, or doesn’t happen in another distribution, or doesn’t happen in a different environment, please mention it and try to pinpoint the differences at play.
If we can’t reproduce a particular bug and we don’t understand its cause, it’s unlikely we’ll be able to fix it.
The BETA phase is literally a bug squashing rush, where the team is extremely busy and developers try to fix as many bugs as fast as possible.
There usually are a huge number of reports and very little time to answer everyone or explain why a particular report is not considered a bug, or won’t get fixed. Don’t let this frustrate you, whether it’s acknowledged or not, we appreciate everyone’s help.
